Chinese dance drama "Butterfly Lovers," a folktale of the Chinese version of "Romeo and Juliet," is staged at the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre in San Francisco, the United States, Aug. 29, 2019. The sixth Across Pacific-China Arts Festival kicked off here Thursday evening to bolster closer connections between Chinese and American people. The opening ceremony, hosted by the Chinese Consulate General in San Francisco, was followed by a two-hour performance of the dance drama "Butterfly Lovers." The drama was presented by a group of senior students from China's Beijing Dance Academy with Li Hengda of Seattle-based Hengda Dance Academy as director and choreographer. The festival, which will last through Oct. 18, 2019, will bring to American audiences Chinese dances, folk songs, acrobatics, visual arts events featuring Chinese and U.S. paintings and drawings, Chinese tourism photo shows, exotic Chinese food, and intangible Chinese cultural heritage.
