DESCRIPTION

Stephen Roddy, professor of modern and classical languages at the University of San Francisco, takes us through the storyline of the San Francisco Opera’s world premiere commission of Dream of the Red Chamber, based on the classic Qing-dynasty novel. He will be joined by composer Bright Sheng to talk about the inspirations behind the music and give guests the inside scoop on how the story evolved into an opera. A preview of excerpts from the opera will be performed at the end of the evening.
