Danish political pundits fear serious repercussions for the Danish-US relationship in the future after US Pres上海夜生活
ident Donald Trump announced postponing his visit to Denmark in a Tweet Tuesday night.
Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksens has
earlier clearly refused to discuss a possible sale of Greenland to the United States.上海夜生活女神会所
“Greenland is not for sale,” said the prime minister,” Greenland is not Danish. Gre
enland is Greenlandic. I persistently hope that it is not something that is seriously meant.”
上海夜生活In a follow-up post on the tweet, Trump acknowledged the Danish prime minister’s “direct” rejection of his offer.
“….The Prime Minister was able to save a great deal of expense and effort for both the United States and

Trump’s cancellation comes as a surprise to Lene Balleby, head of communications at the Da

ncers from the Liaoning Ballet of China will take their original ballet Hua Mulan to the United States a
nd Canada in late August, representing the troupe’s first performance of the classic outside of China.上海品茶微信
For Yu, who entered the Liaoning Ballet in 2009, it has been a unique process.
“In the past, I often played the roles of a swan or a princess. This tim上海品茶微信
e, I had to become a man who is ultimately found to be a woman,” she says. To act Mulan’s p
art well, she had to do push-ups and fight with sticks on stage, just like the male dancers.
上海品茶微信The story originates from a Northern Dynasty (386-581) folk song, known as the Ballad of Mulan. The song tells the tal
e of a valiant girl who joins the army on behalf of her ailing father, battles enemies to defend her country and fights with
high distinction. However, she refuses the accolades thrust upon her and ultimately retires to her hometown.上海品茶微信
Besides the physical techniques required, Chinese b
allet cares about portraying its characters’ inner world and expressing emotions.
“Playing the legendary warrior has made me grow up and deepened my understanding of performance, life and Chin上海品茶微信
ese culture,” Yu says. “You should be able to impress yourself before you can impress your audience.”
Qu Zijiao, 57-year-old director of the Liaoning Ballet, says: “To tell Ch
上海品茶微信inese stories to global audiences, the legend of Mulan is more relatable than others.”
She says it is a touching story, and Mulan’s heroic spirit, perseverance, and love fo
r country and peace can resonate with people everywhere, adding that many European and American audiences are
already familiar with her story thanks to Disney’s classic animated film, which introduced上海品茶微信
the legend of Mulan to the West. Additionally, the recent release of initial footage from Disney’s u
pcoming live-action remake of Mulan has sparked renewed interest in the character.
上海品茶微信The 100 plus-minute ballet Hua Mulan incorporates classic and modern art elements that will suit the taste of today’s a
