Huang Ruo

Mark your calendars! This concert will be streamed live at 7:30 pm ET.

The adventurous composer and conductor Huang Ruo, born in China at the end of the Cultural Revolution, rose to prominence with work buoyed by a culturally agnostic ear and a tireless curiosity for innovation. Ruo’s compositions embrace Western classical and avant-garde, theater, dance, and an audio omnivore's selection of genres blended into a multimedia amalgam he calls “Dimensionalism.” This more-is-more approach has yielded highly celebrated productions, including An American Soldier, created with the playwright David Henry Hwang, and the NYT Critics Pick, The Sonic Great Wall. For his American Songbook debut, Huang Ruo will present a selection of arias from his many operas.
