TAN DUN Nu Shu: The Secret Songs of Women
Over many centuries, women in China were kept illiterate. In response, some developed a secret language of song. The SLSO and Principal Harpist Allegra Lilly accompany recordings of these silenced women, giving them a voice in Tan Dun’s Nu Shu. Scherezade uses her voice to tell tales, keeping herself alive for 1,001 nights by tricking a murderous king with stories he can’t ignore.
Classical Series presented by Steward Family Foundation
