乐动英超后花园品茶微信”I have participated in the translation of 24 Chinese TV series and I feel proud,” she sai

Namuundari has been studying Chinese since age six. She returned to her hometown Ulan Bator乐动英超后花园
as a Chinese-Mongolian translator after graduation from China’s Beijing International Studies University.
“In recent years, more and more Chinese movies and TV dramas have been dubbed and their Mongolian audience has become larger and larger,” she said.乐动英超后花园品茶微信
Dubbing Chinese movies and TV plays has become a key area of cultural exchanges and cooperation between China and Mongolia in recent years.
China has decided to provide Mongolia with 25 films and TV dramas for free from 2014 to 2020. Other p
rojects such as “Silk Road Film and TV Project” have also introduced Chinese video products to Mongolia.乐动英超后花园
The Mongolian Language Satellite TV Channel of China’s Inner Mongolia Radio and TV Station set up a tran

Until now, a total of 36 Chinese TV plays and four films have been translated in the
center, of which 30 TV dramas and two movies have been broadcast, said Uul, dire乐动英超后花园品茶微信
ctor of the Khalkha Mongolian Language Dubbing Center for Chinese Films and TV Dramas.
The center has cooperated with 27 local TV stations to broadcast these plays, he added.
Ulan Bator TV Station’s 2016 ratings data showed that Chinese TV dramas such as “May-December Love,” “Ice and Fire of You
th” and “Romance of Our Parents” have been watched more than 100,000 times on average. “May-December Love” ha
s received 550,000 views, setting a new record for foreign TV dramas in Mongolia.
According to Kanter Media’s statistics, the market share of Chinese movies and TV play

President Mattarella would play a key role in this phase, verifying with every political force hold
乐动英超后花园ing seats in parliament whether an alternative majority could be shaped to form a new government.
Given the sensitive time of the crisis — which may bring the country to un

suggest forming a technocrat government, but only if parliamentary forces agreed to support it.
Among the urgent domestic affairs were the need to outline the country’s next budget, a乐动英超后花园

Mattarella’s talks with parties’ leaders will continue through Th

If such consultations do not deliver any political solution, the president wi乐动英超后花园

Meanwhile, major parties began defining their own position in the crisis.
A possible deal between the M5S — which holds the largest number of seats in both lower house and se乐动英超后花园女神会所

The two parties have harshly attacked each other in latest years, but their joining forces now could乐动英超后花园
produce a majority in parliament — with the help of minor allies — cutting anti-immigrant League out.
乐动英超后花园女神会所On Wednesday, the PD leadership approved a resolution opening to possible n

It was just one of a series of events to celebrate the POB’s 350th anniversary. The compa
乐动英超后花园女神会所ny presented four performances of?Swan Lake?in Shanghai from June 29 to July 1 and two per
formances of a gala show, featuring creations by three contemporary choreographers, that concluded on Friday.
The company made the decision to perform?Swan Lake?in Shanghai not only because it is on
e of the most beloved productions in the ballet world, famed for its robust energy and rich color. More imp
ortantly, the version created by Rudolf Nureyev (1938-93) is one that “best represents the style, aesthetics and cap
abilities of the Paris Opera Ballet”, says Flavien Moglia, executive president of the company.
Nureyev, one of the former Soviet Union’s best-known dancers, created a new versio
n of?Swan Lake?in 1984, when he was the director of the company. Also considered one of the greatest male ballet danc
ers of the 20th century, Nureyev brought a new depth to the ballet, especially by adding a psychological angle to
the role of the prince, says Jean-Guillaume Bart, a ballet master with the POB.Nureyev gave the story a Freudian di
mension, illuminating Tchaikovsky’s poetic dream with a profound sense of hopelessness, he adds.
In Nureyev’s?Swan Lake, the dark wizard is an ambiguous figure. At first, he serves as a sort of tutor or guide to the prince, bef
ore gradually turning into a negative influence that mirrors the dark side of the prince. The contrast between the w
hite swan and black swan also reflects the two sides of the prince’s soul, Bart explains.
Also, Nureyev introduced difficult new movements and gestures into his choreography. “We hope audiences can appre
ciate the depth of Swan Lake, rather than just seeing it as a traditional and established ballet production.”
