<< back  review>>


try out performance of one aria at the Odeon theatre in Zwolle

The "Farewell aria" is the scene in which Western architect Sem meets the Chinese opera star Qin Mulan for the first time and they fall in love. It is misleadingly called "farewell" aria because Mulan is singing a seemingly traditional Chinese opera scene about a concubine saying farewell to her beloved war lord.

Naomi Sato, sheng

Frank Wienk, percussion and samples
