SCO, together with iconic Cantonese singer Johnny Yip and maestro Tsung Yeh, presents a nostalgic and memorable evening of your favourite wuxia theme songs that transports you into a world of martial arts heroes and heroines.
The lightning-quick kungfu moves, the impossible leaps into the air, the themes of integrity and honour — relive the memories with iconic songs from classic wuxia films and television serials such as The Legend of the Condor Heroes, The Heavenly Sword and the Dragon Sabre, Swordsman, The Legend of Master So, Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils, and more.
This concert also features the orchestra performing to a special version of the groundbreaking wuxia movie One-Armed Swordsman (1967), with music composed by established composers such as Hong Kong composer Lincoln Lo and rearranged by Singapore composer Phoon Yew Tien and Law Wai Lun.
