(NR) USA – 1 hr 30 min

Reviews
Starring Láng Lang, Tan Dun, Yannick Nézet-Séguin

In 1973, amid Cold War tensions and the ongoing Cultural Revolution, the Philadelphia Orchestra embarked on a tour of the People’s Republic of China, where most western classical music had previously been banned. Weaving together history, geopolitics, and soaring performances, this documentary recounts that groundbreaking visit and follows the Philadelphia Orchestra on its 2019 return to China, now a global center of classical music.

After the film, join us for an in-theater conversation with directors Jennifer R. Lin and Sharon Mullally.
