Storyline

Tea recounts how Chinese composer Tan Dun wrote the opera Tea; a tragic love story set against the background of the Japanese tea ceremony. He combines Eastern and Western composition techniques to create unique fusion of music between two great musical traditions. TheTea opera is the door to the mystical world of Chado; the Way of Tea. A world in which the ultimate objective is; as Tan Dun himself states; "To hear colour and to see sound". Beautifully crafted by Franck Scheffer;Tea includes interviews of Tan Dun; librettist Xu Ying and director Pierre Audi; as well as performances with the NHK Symphony Orchestra and the Dutch Chamber Orchestra conducted by Tan Dun.
