TCO’s 26th annual concert once again forges new paths by exploring how different cultures and art forms combine in a stunning audio-visual experience. As one of those rare compositions that has bridged cultures, the Butterfly Lovers Concerto tells the tragedy of two lovers whose spirits are finally united in death as a pair of butterflies. TCO’s new Composer-in-Residence is the award-winning Jon Lin Chua; she promises a new composition that combines both Asian heritage and Western influences. TCO’s own internationally-acclaimed guzheng soloist, Lina Cao, performs Night Mooring by Maple Bridge. Honorary Music Director Dr. Chih-Sheng Chen returns to lead TCO in telling the gripping story of Madam Su-Ro, the Korean folk tale of a woman who was kidnapped by a sea dragon. Madam Su-Ro combines Chinese orchestra with Korean drums and visual effects to heighten the drama of her kidnapping and subsequent rescue.
