The Lunar New Year Concert 2024 is a musical celebration of the Year of the Dragon. The unique concert features ten outstanding young performers from the Xi'an Song and Dance Theater, forming an innovative ensemble with its own halo. You will see a brand-new way of performance, which is a kind of musical storytelling, emotional visualization, and vivid expression of instrumental performance.
Set against the backdrop of the historical tales of Chang'an in China, this production incorporates traditional Chinese musical instruments such as pipa, guzheng, erhu, and more. Structured into distinct chapters, each marked by unique styles, intentions, and innovative segments, the creative team draws inspiration from the distinctive cultural heritage of Shaanxi. With a fusion of compelling stage concepts and contemporary artistic expressions and various costumes, the performance promises to captivate audiences.
As the annual featured event in the Happy Chinese New Year in Sydney initiated by Ausfeng Events and China Cultural Centre in Sydney since 2014, the concert will showcase diverse creativities and illuminate the depth and breadth of cultural celebrations.
