What do you get when you hand Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake to Chinese contortionists?
Performed by the Great Chinese State Circus. (Yes, I'm sure that you too are tired of YouTube's terrible definition. I look forward to the next generation of online video)

Great video! Thanks for putting it up. I love to watch people do things like that.

You get a dead bird and a relentless frozen lake sized dance of deception.
Somebody's angel must have sent that Mexican lady to help *somebody* come clean.

Really beautiful video. I find this much more engaging than Western ballet, although I'm not expert enough on either to really discuss their respective merits.
FYI: if you're looking for higher resolution video hosting, Vimeo has free HD capability (real HD, too). Their service is excellent.

Every once in a while you see something that makes you think, "This is what the internet is good for. I'm showing this to my whole family." This is one of those times.
