Notes and Editorial Reviews

The recipient of numerous prestigious awards, Xiaogang Ye is regarded as one of today’s leading Chinese composers. The Macau Bride is a colourful and evocative ballet based on a story from the 17th century in which Chinese sailor Chon Kou and Portuguese captain’s daughter Maria do Mar fall in love following a chance encounter in Belém. They set sail for Macau, survive a storm and an attack by pirates, and are finally reunited and married in Macau. The Four Poems of Lingnan come from the classical literature of ancient Chinese dynasties, the songs adding powerful new dimensions to ancient masterpieces.
