Frequently read but seldom heard, well-loved Chinese literary classics are given a new dimension in this musical presentation by the Singapore Chinese Orchestra.

The love between Jia Bao Yu and Lin Dai Yu in Dream of the Red Chamber; the strategic warfare between Zhou Yu and Zhu Ge Liang in Romance of the Three Kingdoms; the sharp-witted Sun Wu Kong in Journey to the West; and the righteous gathering of men in Water Margin — the essence of these well-loved Chinese classics are masterfully presented and keenly felt through evocative Chinese orchestral music. This concert features works by one of China's most influential composers Zhao Ji Ping and his compatriot Wang Li Ping, Hong Kong composer Chen Ning-chi and a co-composition by Singapore composer Law Wai Lun and Hong Kong's Lincoln Lo.
