【2017/18】2018/05/26 Ode to Gallantry—3D Sound and Lighting Concert

“Silver saddle shinning upon white horse, galloping like meteor. Killing within ten steps, drifting away thousands of miles without leaving a trace.” “Ode to Gallantry”, written by the famous Tang Dynasty poet Li Bai, was the inspiration of the wuxia novel by JIN Yong and has become the symbolic wuxia icon for everyone. Seeking after Righteousness, keeping promise, disdaining worldly treasures, wuxia aroused awe-inspiring righteousness for more than a thousand of years, in this either questing for small and fortunate or craving for blood thirsty rampage, where can the true spirit of wuxia radiate?

This special TCO concert will fill your heart with gallantry! Bring famous classic title songs form famous wuxia films by top Taiwan male singers, and inviting Nanguan singer WANG Xinxin to interpret poems by Li Bai, and combining electric guitar with Gu-chin+ Percussion ensemble + Orchestra + Surround sound + Lighting effects in the main title concerto, this high-tech concert will shake you with immense joy and pride.
