Mainland TV actress Dong Xuan with birds

We try not to miss a chance to post images of an actress with a bird or two. In this case the editors of Xinjua Entertainment Weekly decided that mixing a swan, snow and Dong Xuan would add up to Swan Lake. The Chinese characters 天鹅湖 may mean an altogether different Swan Lake, not the ballet and score that is a major work in the 19th century western Romantic canon and a staple of ballet companies the world over, but something else entirely. However: Dong Xuan holding a swan:

Dong Xuan not holding a swan:
