Dressed in white, accompaniedon the piano, the soprano pouredout affectionatelythe pain of longing for her beloved and the great joy of eventual realization of the dream.
Chamber Music: The Dream of China
The black and white keys tinkled on the piano, reminding us of the fountain that flowed with a merry gurgle; Chinese ancient zither，Guqin, tranquilize our soul with its typical lightness, cleanness and remoteness conveyed by every note plucked and every string pressed. While Bamboo flute, the cello, the viola, the violin—various musical instruments, interweaved their sounds and performed a fabulous chapter of Chinese dream.
UkraineComedy Where the hell have you been

Confronted by his wife’s aggressive questioning, the wrongedhusband, afterbeggingforgivenessrepeatedly in vain, said in a fit of piquethat he had slept with the chambermaid for two days and two nights. Contradictionthus grew intense, as is shown in the passionate tunes. The performance demonstrated rich alternations of mood.
