“There is a picture of me in college dressed as the risqué gypsy Carmen. I loved singing and performing the role, with her sultry melodies, surrounded by the passion and bravado of bullfighters.  A Russian prince falls in love with and saves the princess with the help of The Firebird, and I’m excited to share the complete version of Stravinsky’s glorious and magnificent ballet with our audience.  Growing up, the most famous love story was The Butterfly Lovers, our Chinese Romeo and Juliet. We are thrilled to welcome back violinist Sirena Huang to the HSO to share this 1000-year-old legend, which journeys from the joyful pentatonic youthful melodies to the final scene of two lovers turning into butterflies to be together forever.” – Carolyn Kuan, Music Director
