Last week I heard that my work The Peasant Prince for narrator and orchestra, will be performed for the first time in my home city of Melbourne in January.  Details and ticketing information here soon.  The Peasant Prince follows the story of Li Cunxin (Mao's Last Dancer) using the text from his children's book The Peasant Prince (Penguin Australia).  

This work was also performed last June by Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra / Northey with guest appearance from Anne Spudvilas who did the gorgeous illustrations for the book which were highlighted on a screen behind the TSO.
