The phoenix, fenghuang in Chinese, is about an old folk tale. But who has seen fenghuang? Who understands fenghuang? In Western Greece and Egypt , the phoenix is a long-lived bird. In Oriental India, the bird achieves nirvana in flames every five hundred years. In ancient China, fenghuang, being a propitious omen, are two birds, one male and one female. And feng woos huang. When there is a male , there must also be a female. And you need yin(female) to generate yang(male). How could a fairy bird fly alone? But being o ne in heaven and the other on earth , one in the East and the other in the West , never shall feng and huang meet, just like whenever the sun rises , the moon sets . But they overcome all improbability and meet at last , showing the poignancy and meaning of great love. When there is life, there must also be death. And there must be death in order to have life . How could fenghuang live forever? Only because death follows a long life, and rebirth follows death. The cycle goes on and on. Thus fenghuang achieves nirvana, gaining new life from the flames of a fire. It is my great honor to connect with conductor and composer Maestro Mak Ka Lok to explore the possibility of producing a completely new version of the fenghuang legend. Maestro Mak is proficient in German and is a world-famous conductor who had performed with the Russian and Austrian Symphony Orchestra.
