Abstract / Synopsis

Among many concert performances ranging from shi dai qu (Chinese Oldies), folk songs to popular numbers, Butterfly Lovers (2006) was the first musical production by Dama Orchestra. Transformed from Shaw’s Love Eterne to a musical theatre production, the music was arranged and composed from popular huangmei folksongs, which together with the costume and stage design gave a modern flavour to the performance. As the arrangers/composers for this production, both authors describe the process and experience of musical arrangement and composition for Butterfly Lovers. Chapters one to three explain about Dama orchestra and provide details regarding the transformation from Love Eterne to Butterfly Lovers, while chapters four to six give musical scores and discuss performance issues of the production. The live recording of Butterfly Lovers was released in 2009.
