On the evening of April 18 and 20, the acrobatic ballet "Swan Lake" created by the Xi'an Warrior Battle Banner Acrobatic Troupe completed two performances at the Royal Opera House in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman.

Oman is the hometown of Sinbad in "One Thousand and One Nights" and the city where the search banner is held in the hand. As one of the oldest countries in the Arabian Peninsula, Oman is full of the charm of historical precipitation. The capital, Muscat, used to be an important port for trade between ancient China and Arab countries, and was the only port city on the maritime "Silk Road" passing through the Arabian Peninsula.


According to the introduction, this is the first time that the Xi'an Warrior Battle Banner Acrobatic Troupe's acrobatic ballet "Swan Lake" has appeared on the stage in Oman. During the two-hour performance, the "Silk Road" version of "Swan Lake", which interprets Western classics with Eastern aesthetics, used its unique fusion artistic language to show the Omani audience the profound charm of Chinese culture, thus realizing the artistic effect of "each beauty has its own beauty, and the beauty is shared" in Eastern and Western cultures.


The actors showcased the characters' firmness, tenderness, grief, joy, and other emotions on top of each other. More than 30 classic high-level acrobatic techniques ran through the story, and various acrobatic techniques such as shoulder ballet, bar shaking, strength and beauty were rewarded with applause and cheers from the audience.


One audience member said: "The Chinese actors combined Western ballet and Eastern acrobatics perfectly, which gave me an unprecedented shocking experience. When the white swan stood on the prince's head, the thrilling and aesthetic fusion was amazing. Thank you to the Chinese acrobats for making it such a great night."


It is understood that the Muscat Royal Opera House in Oman is one of the most technologically advanced national theaters in the world, and the invitation of the acrobatic ballet "Swan Lake" to Oman is also a figurative embodiment of the acrobatic art being recognized by overseas audiences through its own "world language".
