Chinese bass-baritone Shen Yang, a winner of several international opera competitions, is staging a cutting-edge multi-media musical adapted on the basis of Schubert Winterreise on October 28.

Shen Yang gives his show a Chinese name "Zhu", which means chase, in which he acts as a lovelorn teenage traveler.

Winterreise depicts a lonely winter journey in poetry. Schubert set a total of 24 poems by Wilhelm M¨šller to music.

The musical's director Zou Shuang thinks equipping a classical music performance with dazzling multi-media is a new method to enliven the musical.

"Music is intangible, but we could create a vivid environment in the theatre, which contains both sceneries and real characters to tell the stories behind music. In this way, listeners could understand what the music tries to convey," the director added.

Born to a musical family in Tianjin, in which both his parents were singers, Shenyang studied at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music and at Zhou Xiaoyan Opera Center in China under the guidance of Professor Ping Gu.

Shen Yang's performance in The Red on the Sanlitun Bar Street in Beijing is arranged by the organizers of Beijing Music Festival which will conclude this Saturday.
