Investing in performing arts

CHINA is spending 18 million yuan (RM8.3mil) on staging 30 artistic performances as the first stage of a national performing arts project this year, the Ministry of Culture announced in Beijing on Thursday.  

The project, officially launched on Nov 28 last year, will invest 40 million yuan (RM18.2mil) annually over the next five years, in about 50 top artistic performances.  

Feng Yuan, director of the Ministry’s arts department, who is in charge of the selection, said the performances, chosen from 166 troupes, showed the highest level of China’s performing arts, each with a unique artistic style. 

He said the performances would be appraised by experts and 10 would be selected as the best performances this year.  

Feng also said an evaluation mechanism of artistic troupes was on the ministry’s schedule. – People’s Daily
