A Chinese Home @ Stanford Lively Arts

This Saturday, January 16th, Stanford Lively Arts presents the Kronos Quartet and pipa virtuoso Wu Man in the West Coast premiere of A Chinese Home at Stanford University's Memorial Auditorium at 8 PM. The program also revisits a past collaboration between Kronos and Wu Man - Tan Dun’s Ghost Opera. 

A Chinese Home was inspired by the extraordinary story of Yin Yu Tang, an elegant, 300-year-old house from a southeastern Chinese village that was dismantled piece-by-piece at the turn of the millennium and rebuilt at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts. Drawing on Yin Yu Tang's potent metaphors of displacement and migration, rebirth and rebuilding, the work explores China's evolving identity through contributions by multiple composers, enhanced with live staging and video elements by acclaimed stage and film director Chen Shi-Zheng (The Peony Pavilion, Dark Matter, The Bonesetter's Daughter).

Tickets start at $34, but members of our email list receive a 50% discount by using the code "HOME" when purchasing tickets. Tickets are available online or by calling 650-725-2787.
