Speaking about the music上海乌托邦’s music director Jesse

Warkentin, says: “Gershwin’s music is full of pictures, romantic and

sensory. And it takes the audience back to the city in 1945, at the end of World War II.”上海乌托邦女神会所

Sean Kelly, resident director of the musical, in Beijing, who spent two decades

上海乌托邦as principal dancer with Houston Ballet, had taught at the Beijing Dance Academy for a year in the early 1990s.

“Compared with the movie, the musical is more dramatic. And we worked hard on the casting to make

the dance dynamics come alive onstage,” Kelly says. “Chinese audiences enjoy musicals. But what e

xcites me more is that they like discussing the stories and characters with us after the shows.”上海乌托邦女神会所

A new musical marking the 70th anniversary of New China’s founding will premiere at the China National Theater for Children on July 6.

上海乌托邦Stars in the Flame tells the story of children who lost their parents during the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression (1931-45).

It centers on the Battle of Songhu, also known as the Battle of Shanghai, which was one of the bloodiest conflicts during the war.

The work directed by Zhao Yu and composed by Wang

Gang is the opening play of the ninth China Children’s Theater Festival.上海乌托邦女神会所

“We went to Shanghai and Wuhan to learn about the history,” Zhao says.

“It was an unforgettable experience since we’ve learned many lesser-known sto

ries, especially those about the orphans who fought alongside our soldiers.”

Another children’s play, based on Danish author Hans Christian Anderse上海乌托邦

n’s classic fairy tale, The Little Mermaid, will also open the festival on July 6. The Chinese-Dan

ish joint production is directed by Torkild Lindebjerg and composed by Dane Jens Tolsgaard.上海乌托邦女神会所

The festival is staged annually during the summer vacation under the theme, “art changes lives”.

From July 6 to Aug 11, 57 theatrical productions from 14 countries, including the United

States, Japan and Russia, will stage 191 performances at the China National Theater for Children.

And when Abe visited China, 12 cooperation documents-two agreements and 10

ormation technology and finance have laid the basis for upgrading China-Japan relations in the new era.上海乌托邦

However, to develop Sino-Japanese relations in a way that meet the requ

上海乌托邦Politically, the two sides should abide by the principles enshrined in the four political doc

uments inked by the two governments, and ensure the two sides are cooperation partners, not a threat to ea

ch other. Exchanges and coordination at all levels, particularly those between the leaders, should be strengthened to de上海乌托邦女神会所

epen mutual trust and help Sino-Japanese ties to evolve on a friendly and cooperative track.

On the economic front, the two sides should deepen cooperat

ion in investment, third-party markets, technology and innovation so as to boost mu上海乌托邦女神会所

tual economic growth and promote regional economic integration, including accelerating the regional economic coop

eration negotiation process, encouraging enterprises to increase investments in each other’s country and bu上海乌托邦女神会所

The cultural bonds between the two countries need to be further strengthened. And the two sides should expedite t

heir efforts to promote youth exchanges and people-to-people engagement in order to deepen mutual un

derstanding. It is good to see that the two governments have decided to take the 2019 China-Japan Youth Exchange Pro

motion Year as an opportunity to initiate senior-level cultural exchanges to bring the two peoples closer.

Expectation of Fed ra上海乌托邦s an over-reaction

Herd instinct is the human nature to follow the crowd and act collectively – and market expectation always does not change smoothly but t

上海乌托邦ends to over-react to new information. The current market expectation of the US Federal Reserve’s rate cuts is a case in point.

On June 20, the latest meeting of the Fed’s policy-setting Federal Open Market Committee shrugged off the market’s high expectation of rate cuts and gave no clear policy signal confirming a cut.

We believe the market had overreacted in forming its expectation of rate cuts after the Fed swiftly adopted a dovish tone from the end of last上海乌托邦

year. Specifically, we believe market expectation – it has formed since May – of a change in policy stance, as well as the timing and degree of rate cuts, may not fully materialize.

We will elaborate on this now. It should be noted the misconceived expectation of Fed rate cuts could ind上海乌托邦

uce a drastic reversal in investor sentiment and asset price fluctuations, if the Fed’s moves miss expectation.

Firstly, the market may have overestimated the degree of the Fed’s policy stance change. A clear rate cut signal may not emerge until the end of this month.上海乌托邦

According to Bloomberg, the Fed funds futures market has recently priced in a 98.5-percent chance that the Fed will lower rates at least once this year.

上海乌托邦品茶微信However, the Fed’s earlier forward guidance only indicated the end of monetary policy n

ormalization, which does not necessarily point to the beginning of a rate cut cycle. Also, the Fed h

as removed the word “patient” from the latest FOMC meeting statement but did not confirm a rate-cut stance.

We believe that because of the following two reasons, the Fed is still on cautious lookout, and t

here will not be any clear rate cut signal or plan until the next FOMC meeting at the end of this month.上海乌托邦品茶微信

Externally, the Fed is expected to stand pat until trade dispute uncertainties ease, to give itself an advantage in its game with the US Administration.

The Fed would put itself in an unfavorable position if it initiated a rate cut before majo上海乌托邦品茶微信

r uncertainties over the China-US trade dispute are removed, because the pre-emptive move may enc

ourage the US Administration to escalate the trade dispute, which will in turn pose a dilemma to the Fed.

That’s because any escalation in trade tensions will, on the one hand, d

ssipate and even offset the easing boost from rate cuts and force the Fed to accelerate the上海乌托邦品茶微信

rate cut pace. On the other hand, the escalation could further fuel imported inflation, which will significantly reduce the

Fed’s room for rate cuts. The Fed will then face a policy-making dilemma of whether to further cut rates.

As a traditional open day of the Beijing arm of the Cervantes Institute, a Spanish cultural center, the Spanish Day is celebrated to honor learners, lovers and promoters of Spanish, the world’s second most spoken native language.上海乌托邦

Held on June 22 this year, the event featured young soccer players and Spanish learners who staged a medley of sports and artistic performances. In addition, as a prelude to the exhibition Writer Picasso, those young participants also created a mega-sized mosaic artwork as a tribute to the Spanish master.上海乌托邦品茶微信

Construction of the second 330-meter-tall tower for one of the world’s largest cable-stayed bridges was completed in East China’s Jiangsu province on Thursday.

上海乌托邦品茶微信The 11,072-meter-long Hutong Yangtze River Bridge, linking the cities of Nantong and Suzhou, is de

signed with a main span of 1,092 meters, making it the world’s first road-rail cable-stayed bridge with a span over 1,000 meters.

Ning Chaoxin, with the China Railway Major Bridge Engineering Group Co., Ltd (MBEC), the project’s contractor, said the two c上海乌托邦品茶微信

able towers are the key force structure of the bridge. The longer the bridge spans, the higher the cable tower needs to be.

To ensure the shipping on China’s busiest waterway, the bridge is designed to have a longer span. About 73,000 cubic meters of concrete

and 11,000 tonnes of steel bars were used to build each tower, whose height is equivalent to a 110-storey skyscraper.

Ning said the huge construction volume is required so that the bridge can withstand

violent typhoons, magnitude-8 earthquakes and impacts from the collision of a 100,000-tonne ship.

The bridge will have a 6-lane expressway on the upper deck and four railway tracks on the lower deck.

The track laying on the bridge will start in January 2020, according to MBEC. The bridge is expected to ensure the river shipping on the Yangtze, while easing the roa

d and railway traffic pressure in the Yangtze River Delta region, China’s economic powerhouse.
