They fall in love, but their union is ill-fated as their elders favor a more suitable union for Bao Yu with his affable cousin Bai Chai. A counterpoint plot is of the noble Jia family heading for social disgrace and financial disaster who represent a crumbling society as the Chinese aristocracy finds itself increasingly unable to maintain the facade of noble infallibility and comes into conflict with ancient Buddhist and Confucian values.Regular: $66.25Through Telecharge 212-239-6200 | www.telecharge.com | Box Office Discounts available Online at www.telechargeoffers.com | 212-947-8844 | Box Office.
