SAIC Shanghai Culture Square has returned with its “spring gift” packages, offering theatergoers discounted tickets for performances over the next three months.

The show list includes Broadway musical “Dreamgirls” (January 11-12), Russian State Ballet’s “Swan Lake” (January 26-30) and “The Nutcracker” (January 28) and a Broadway concert featuring classic stage songs (January 27).
Tickets for six original Chinese musicals are also in the packages. The musicals “Spring in Shanghai 1949,” “An Accident of Love,” “West Chamber,” “The Search of Sound,” “Flying with Martin” and “Nine Colored Deer” will be staged at Shanghai Culture Square in February and March.
Three packages priced at 300 yuan (US$43), 320 yuan and 450 yuan, respectively, have been made available this year. The 300-yuan package contains two 180-yuan tickets, while the 450-yuan package contains two 280-yuan tickets.
