Needed advise to choose a concert in Shanghai.
Hello! Please, could you help me with choosing a concert in January to book a ticket to (as a present for a friend)? There are four of them: of Chinese, classical and Joe Hisaishi's music, right? Will the last one be interesting for an adult?
And (the last) how can I book a ticket if I don't live in China?
Thanks a lot!

Yes, I happen to know this, there are four concerts in next Jan.
Don’t worry, you’ve made a good choice! Joe Hisaishi’s music is totally interesting for anyone!
By the way, the concert will be held in Jan. 5th , and you can call 0086-400-8918182 for booking.
