The making of 'The Peasant Prince'

The Peasant Prince

"This is your one chance. You have your dreams. Follow them! Make them come true..."

The Peasant Prince is the story of Mao’s last dancer, Li Cunxin, a peasant boy taken from a poor village to study ballet in Beijing. Inspired by his father’s tale about the little frog that wanted to get out of the deep well where he lived, to see the bigger world above, Li persevered in order to pursue his dream of a better life. For 7 years he practiced until he became the best dancer in China. By the age of 20 and after defecting to America, he became a star.

Li's happiest moment was the first time his parents were permitted to travel from China to watch him dance. In all his years of ballet training and stardom, he never forgot his family and his home
