Younger generations上海龙凤419ve shows in demand

Tang Yuqing, 19, a college student in Beijing, says she watches ballet, dr

上海龙凤419ama or musicals about five times a month. Each ticket costs her from 100 to 300 yuan. Her f

avorites include French musical Mozart-L’opera Rock and the play adapted from Eileen Chang’s novel The Golden Cangue.上海龙凤419

“Watching live performances gives a more immersive experience than TV or the internet. Observing the details of ons

tage performances is fun. And it makes me feel relaxed by becoming part of the audience atmosphere,” she says, adding t

上海龙凤419hat she thinks it’s a waste not to visit a theater when Beijing provides much more resources than her hometown.

Tang also says part of the reason for students like her who enjoy shows

is that they have more free time and are yet to shoulder the pressures of life.上海龙凤419

Wu Di, 22, who studies anthropology in London, says she now watches musicals about twice a month. Each ticket costs ab

out 20 to 30 pounds ($24 to $36) on discount. At first she used to follow actors or scripts that she liked when sel

上海龙凤419女神会所ecting plays. Now, her interest has grown and she has watched nearly 20 plays i

n the city, including Les Miserables, The Phantom Of the Opera and Notre-Dame de Paris.

“It’s kind of local life to watch live performances, when over 100 plays will be performe上海龙凤419

d every night,” she says. “The songs are pleasing to hear. The stage is beautifully decorated. The stories convey somet

hing good about humanity. It’s also a social activity for me and my friends to watch and discuss together.”

上海龙凤419女神会所She says she often gets information through advertisements on the subway and Sina Weibo.

According to the report, in 2017, males were about 39 percent of the audience. Its proportion grew 5 percentage points last year.上海龙凤419

Song Yuran, 24, an animation designer in Beijing, spent two weeks in London last year to watch plays, with tickets costing ab

上海龙凤419女神会所out 8,000 yuan. One of the plays, Hamilton, inspired him. “The body moves and eye contact between the actors

and the audience, as well as the emotions aroused at the theater, were unforgettable.”

He adds: “At another play, an actress was singing alone onstage. At th

e crux of that song, a beam of light came across her and hit the audience.”

“Lagarde has excellent pe上海龙凤419MF chief, with a go

forts in making the Chinese currency RMB part of the IMF Special Drawing Rights basket on Oct 1, 2016. It made the R

Edward Tse, founder and CEO of management consultancy Gao Feng Advisory, said that Lagarde’s comp

上海龙凤419rehensive experiences in multilateral institutions would make her a qualified ECB head.

He said that an important part of leading the ECB is balancing the p

olitical interests among eurozone members, so political skills are essential and somet上海龙凤419品茶微信

imes are more important than technical skills. And, in the ECB, there are already many economists to assist her.

“The most important part of leading the ECB is political sensitivity and political coord

上海龙凤419品茶微信ination capacity,” he said. “So EU leaders’ choice of Lagarde is very reasonable.”

He added that the EU’s economy lacks vitality, so whoever is ECB head will find it hard to change the situation.

“If Lagarde gradually solves the current problems with her high political sensitivity, it is already the best scenario,” he said.上海龙凤419

“Up till now, EU countries haven’t found the means for quic

Place name campai上海龙凤419女神会所 t, ministry says

The Ministry o上海龙凤419女神会所 f Civil Affairs on Friday instructed local authorities to act

prudently and appropriately in a campaign against improper place names.

Regulations and guidelines should be strictly observed to prevent the campaign from being

expanded in an arbitrary manner, the ministry said in a statement published on its website.

The campaign, which started in December, mainly targets improper names of newly built residential areas and ma

jor projects that have had a negative social effect and have stirred strong public reactions-those featuring exa

ggeration, unrelated foreign elements, strange and vulgar words and repetitive names, it said.

While the rectification campaign has been well-received by the publ

ic in general, some “individual places” have failed to understand the guidelines acc

urately and implement them appropriately, the ministry said. It urged local authorities to regulate their work proce

dures, solicit public and expert opinions and produce a list of proposed name corrections cautiously.
