SWAN LAKE (by the Great Chinese State Circus Ballet Company)

The Great Chinese State Circus Ballet Company performs scenes from Swan Lake on the popular German TV program, Wetten, dass..? (January 26, 2008). This is like nothing you've ever seen. With talent of this magnitude one is almost tempted to forgive the Chinese government its atrocious human rights record. However, in view of the preposterously cruel and ruthless misbehavior of the Israeli and the American governments in recent decades, the Chinese may not be the only evil ones on this planet. After all, in the last 50 years China has invaded only one country - Tibet.
