Well done!

Mr Tan has his ups and downs but when he gets it right he nails it. The Ghost Opera is exactly as advertized while managing to mix the best of east and west. Kronos and Wu Man play with persicion and care. A wonderful recording.

A well-played mix

The melding of East (traditional folk song and instruments) and West (Bach, Shakespeare, classical instruments) is just perfect; an enjoyable listen, for sure, if you can get past the fact that this is not your mother's Little Cabbage.

Very well played...

Haunting, enchanting - deserving of headphones and a quiet room. But Ghost Opera has live visual/theatrical elements; any recording is doomed to fall short of the full experience.
