A Lunar New Year Celebration

A Lunar New Year Celebration

The Sydney Symphony Orchestra welcomes the Year of the Boar with orchestral fireworks.

The Spring Festival Overture captures the festival excitement of the Lunar New Year. It’s so popular that it was broadcast into space on China’s first lunar probe. It ushers in an East-meets-West musical celebration with dances from the heart of China and thrilling moments from opera by Borodin and Tchaikovsky. And the Jin Wu Koon Lion Dance Troupe ensure the year gets off to an auspicious start.

Qigang’s exquisite Iris Unveiled brings shimmering Chinese colours, instruments and voices to the orchestra. The striking, sensuous sound of Peking Opera Singer Meng Meng with erhu (fiddle), pipa (lute) and zheng (zither) contributes to a dreamlike atmosphere, with music that is by turns refined, abandoned and seductive.

Directing the celebrations is ‘impeccable and virtuoso’ young conductor Elim Chan. She’s one of Hong Kong’s brightest musical stars.
