Music and Dance Show "The Tune of Water" to Be Staged at Beijing Tianqiao Performing Arts Center
As the weather warms up, the annual Spring for Chinese Arts kicks off. It is the first art festival brand launched by Beijing Tianqiao Performing Arts Center since its opening. The festival aims to pay attention to Chinese artists, tell Chinese stories, and create a platform for Chinese artists to produce artworks, communicate with each other and have a role on the world stage. As one of the performances of the 4th Spring for Chinese Arts, tickets of the music and dance show "The Tune of Water" produced by the Shanghai Concert Hall is now on sale.
The tune of water is a very old art. In the west part of Hunan Province, lovers were unable to meet each other often in the old days due to the inconvenient traffic, as there are high mountains and long roads. So they sang songs to the river at the appointed time to express their love. They believed that the flowing water could bring this emotion to the lover on the other side of the river.
As a cross-border work combining various artistic elements, "The Tune of Water" is the perfect combination of folk songs, dances, ritual music of the minorities in the west part of Hunan Province such as the Miao and the Tujia, and modern dance’s body movements, Western instrumental music, modern stage art and lighting and other modern elements.
This music and dance show brings together a large number of new generation of artists, including singers, dancers and musicians, who are unique in their respective fields. It’s extremely difficult for them to perform in one show.
"The Tune of Water" will be staged at the Beijing Tianqiao Performing Arts Center on April 6.
