Swan Lake at the National Center for the Performing Arts

Beijing’s National Center for the Performing Arts is definitely my favourite building in Beijing.  It might actually be my favourite building period.  From the outside, it looks like a giant egg.  Inside, there’s four theaters surrounded by a gorgeous wood, titanium, and glass shell.

The Russian National Ballet’s presentation of Swan Lake was also pretty impressive, but not as spectacular as I expected a Russian Ballet to be.  I was expecting more Baryshnikov and less walking.  That being said, any evening at The Egg is a fantastic evening.
