Monson Flute Conductor: Juan Carlos Rivas Period: 20th Century Written: 2001 Date of Recording: 10302001 Venue: Avatar Studios, New York City Length: 61 Minutes 28 Secs. Language: English. Life in New York City's Chinatown is compellingly portrayed through the use of such instruments as the pipa Chinese lute, and the gaohu, erhu, and zhongu two-stringed violins, and Hwang's melodies are ingeniously styled to evoke a Chinese past, remembered with nostalgia and pain by the three main characters. Yet as important as the immigrant experience is to the narrative, it is less significant than the underlying themes of loss, emotional distance, and reconciliation that really carry the opera's action.
