12:00-2:00 PM
Room 1010 | 10th Floor Event Space Weiser Hall Map
Stan Lai's theories on creativity, heretofore only published in Chinese, are considered groundbreaking in the field (Stan Lai on Creativity, in Chinese, 赖声川的创意). Through his invention of bold new genres and innovative staging, Lai has sparked new interest for theatre audiences in China. He will be joined by Bright Sheng, Leonard Bernstein Distinguished University Professor of Music. Sheng is one of the foremost composers of our time whose works are performed regularly across the globe. He collaborated with Stan Lai in the opera production of Dream of the Red Chamber, a much anticipated new opera, which debuted in San Francisco in 2016.
