Program Notes

There was a myth in ancient China that if the girl put a venom in the man whom she loved, the man would treat the girl loyalty forever . . .

Love is such fascinating thing that many people intensely desire it. But once people fall into the trap of love, they begin to face second-guessing, doubt, and fear of betrayal. Is it real love or just insanity with which we make every effort bind our lover?

Portraying the mood of the girl who used the venom, and combining the elements of music theatre, this is a piece that tells a beautiful love story with a poignant emotion. The use of many Chinese percussions, lines, and song depict the local color and move the piece forward; "The Stream Flows" melody from the ancient Chinese folk song expresses the exquisite love of the Chinese girl.
