This concert tells stories of women from different periods in ancient China

A young girl who was longing for love, a bride getting married for love, a wife abandoned by her husband, a woman who could only stay at home while her talent was buried, a woman who is standing on a grand plateau singing about “the Roof of the World”.

The concert attempts to interpret Chinese music from a new angle. It combines electroacoustic music with Chinese Kun opera, ancient poems, and folk singing. It draws inspiration from the Spring and Autumn period, Tang and Ming dynasties.
