When Mao’s Cultural Revolution ended, China’s door cracked open. Four young, classically trained musicians seized the opportunity to flee to the West. As the Shanghai Quartet, they’ve performed for 35 years in the U.S. and around the world. Behind the Strings tells you how they got there, and the price they pay to stay on top.
A special premiere screening of this documentary will be presented prior to the Shanghai Quartet’s live performance. FREE (RSVP requested) for Concert ticket holders. Light dinner provided in between.
