Grammy® and Academy Award® winning composer-conductor Tan Dun has made an indelible mark on the world music scene with an expansive and creative repertoire.
Tan Dun’s newest opera, Tea, was party inspired by Lu Yu’s eighth-century work, Book of Tea. The opera connects the best of the composer’s musical innovations into a compact three-act, 100-minute work.
• The DVD video Teais based on a production by Suntory Hall Tokyo, in co-production with the Netherlands Opera Het Muziektheatre Amsterdam and Shanghai Grand Theatre.
• Libretto written by Tan Dun and Xu Ying (the
resident Playwright of Beijing´s China National Opera and Dance Drama Theatre).
• Bonus material includes three short video features: “Stone Drumming,” “Water Cadenza” and “Ceramic Music.”
