Teck Sponsors National Ballet of China’s Historic First Tour of Canada

Teck Resources Limited (“Teck”) is the presenting sponsor for the National Ballet of China’s first ever tour of Canada. The tour began in February and March of 2013, featuring performances in both Montreal and Vancouver .

“This tour by the National Ballet of China marks its first visit to Canada and symbolizes the growing cultural and economic links between our two countries,” said Don Lindsay, President and CEO of Teck. “Canadians are increasingly aware of these important ties, and this historic tour will further strengthen that relationship. Teck is proud to introduce Canadians to one of China’s cultural treasures.”

Invited by Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal, the National Ballet of China is presenting Raise the Red Lantern, an adaptation of Zhang Yimou’s acclaimed movie of the same name.

The National Ballet of China is China’s only National Ballet. The ballet has toured extensively in over 30 countries to promote cultural exchange and further the development of Chinese ballet.
