Heart Sutra world premiere on TV


I watched Ang Lee’s wonderful movie “Lust, Caution” the other day.

Based on a short story by legendary chinese female writeress Zhang Ai-Ling. Taiwanese director Lee Ang created a sophisticated triller in occupied shanghai by the japanese during world war II. The way Lee extanted Zhang Ai-Ling’s 20 page long short story up to a 2 hours movie is quite remarkable, since Lee hits the drowning atmosphere of Ai-Lings writing quite in her center-heart. Heart Sutra is a chamber opera of mine world premiered in 2013 in Taipei. Heart Sutra is based on the same called short story by Zhang Ai-Ling. Who ever missed the show in Taipei last year, here comes a wonderful TV Production of the premiere.
