The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra presents a symphonic re-imagination of the timeless Floral Princess
Based on the classic Floral Princess created by TONG Tik-sang (1917-1959), this brand new orchestral piece will be performed live by the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra (HK Phil), complemented by the exquisite on-screen interpretation by renowned acting duo YAM Kim-fai (1913-1989) and PAK Suet-sin (b. 1928). In this rendition, as re-interpreted and re-imagined by contemporary artists, raining petals scatter through the night sky, landing on the ruined hills and dwindled rivers in our shared dreams through past and present. Director Rex NG weaves together textual, video, and audio editing, while composer LEE Che-yi pens an original work of symphonic poem. HK Phil Resident Conductor LIO Kuokman will lead the orchestra in this world premiere.
