New work commissioned by the University of Notre Dame’s DeBartolo Performing Arts Center. Kronos and long-time collaborator Wu Man, with director Chen Shi-Zheng (Peony Pavilion), create a new staged work inspired by Yin Yu Tang, the 300 year old Chinese house, which was moved, piece by piece from the Huang Village in China to the Peabody Essex Museum in Massachusetts. The music will be curated and assembled by David Harrington and Wu Man with added elements by specific composers. Visual design and a wide array of Chinese instruments will create a musical celebration of several aspects of Chinese culture. By concentrating on one very specific, magical place, A Chinese Home hopes to take the audience inside China’s musical spirit.
