Traffic on 101 getting there was HORRIBLE, it took us 2 1/2 hours bumper to bumper the whole way. Made mistake of merging on to 110 and got off at 4th. Next time we will stay on 101 and get off at Temple.

Description

Don’t miss a very special Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day performance as the Beijing Dance Academy—hailed as China’s Juilliard School in dance —comes to the U.S. to premiere _The Butterfly Lovers. _

Set to China’s most famous violin concerto, the legend of the Butterfly Lovers is China’s Romeo & Juliet, complete with intrigue, love and tragedy. The evening also includes a selection of award-winning pieces by some of China’s up and coming choreographers.
