Dancers from Staatsballett Berlin perform during a rehearsal in Beijing on June 4, 2013. Staatsballet Berlin will stage the full version of La Péri and also a Mixed Program at the National Center for the Performing Arts in Beijing from June 5 to June 9. Staatsballett Berlin is the largest ballet company in Germany. (Xinhua)

The National Center for the Performing Arts will present the Staatsballett Berlin's version of La Peri (The Flower of Immorality), with music by composer Friedrich Burgmuller and choreography by Vladimir Malakhov, 100 years after the ballet was last performed. The original version of La Peri was performed at the Opera de Paris in 1843, but then faded from public attention. Few of the original music scores and materials remain. The records of the dance movements have been lost. Malakhov, the artistic director, had to create his own version of La Peri, after drawing inspiration from old graphics and a picture album of former ballet stars.

7:30 pm, June 8-9, Opera House,
