Tan Dun: “Tea” Encore

Tan Dun: “Tea” Encore
Tan Dun’s opera TEA was the talk of the town last May when the Oldenburg Opera presented the German premiere in a new production by Anke Hoffman. After its rousing success, Oldenburg added two more performances in June and is presenting an additional run this month. On Deutsche Grammophon’s world premiere DVD of TEA, Tan Dun conducted the NHK Symphony Orchestra and Pierre Audi directed the production in its October 2002 premiere in Tokyo’s Suntory Hall.
