The three-day eighth St. Petersburg International Cultural Forum ended a few days ago in St. Petersburg, a famous historical and cultural city in Russia. As the host and guest country of this forum, China has sent a strong lineup of performing groups and held a number of cultural activities, so that the forum is permeated with a strong "Chinese style."

Led by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, China Foreign Culture Group Co., Ltd. organized a number of domestic well-known art units to participate in the performance and exchange activities of the forum. Among them, the Shanghai National Orchestra held a tour of Russia in 2019 and held many concerts such as "Ode to Peace in Sea Life and Folk Music" with Russian artists. The Chinese National Drama Theater performed the play "Lanling Wang", bringing to the Russian audience the legend of Lanling Wang, a famous Chinese general in the Northern Qi Dynasty more than 1400 years ago.

In addition, at the invitation of the forum, teachers and students of the Beijing Dance Academy staged the classic ballet "Swan Lake" in St. Petersburg on the 16th. Changsha Symphony Orchestra and Russian musicians formed a large band of nearly 100 people to perform the "Friendship of the people" concert in St. Petersburg Philharmonic Hall on the 14th. According to the play "our Jing Ke" by Mo Yan, a famous contemporary Chinese writer, the Russian version of the play "killing the King" met with the audience in St. Petersburg on the evening of the 14th. The important roles in the play were played by Russian actors and caused a sensation.

At the same time, the Chinese side also sent a number of experts and scholars in music, art, film, drama and other fields to participate in various sub-forum activities and conducted in-depth dialogue and exchanges with cultural experts from various countries.

In his speech at the forum, Russian Minister of Culture Mejinski said that the granting of the status of China as the guest of honor at this forum is not only a tribute to the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Russia and China. It is also a symbol of the further strengthening of the comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership between Russia and China in the field of culture in the new era.

Kropatchev, president of St. Petersburg National University, who attended the forum, said in an interview that the fact that China has become the principal guest of the forum illustrates Russia's concern about the spread of Chinese culture in Russia. At present, more than 30,000 Chinese students are studying in Russia, and more than 20,000 Russian students are studying in China. It is hoped that Russia and China will carry out omni-directional and more in-depth cultural exchanges and cooperation and make greater achievements.

Rodionov, executive deputy director of the Oriental Department of St. Petersburg National University, said: with the deepening of exchanges between Russia and China in various fields and at all levels, Chinese and Chinese culture have received more and more attention in Russia. It is hoped that in the future, Russia-China people-to-people exchanges will play a greater role in promoting mutual understanding and friendship between the two peoples.

Zhang Xu, vice minister of culture and tourism of China, who attended the forum, said: 2019 is the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Russia, and China's participation in this forum as the host country is of great significance and is a strong witness to the friendship between China and Russia. It is hoped that the Russian people and friends from all over the world will deeply experience China's long and splendid culture. China will also take this opportunity to learn from the advanced experience of Russia and other countries in the field of cultural prosperity and development.

The eighth St. Petersburg International Cultural Forum kicked off in St. Petersburg on the 14th. The theme of this forum is "Cultural codes in a globalized world". According to the organizers, the forum held more than 350 cultural events, attracting more than 35000 guests from 96 countries.
