Synopsis of Inspiration and Glory

When tip-toes touch the symphony notes,

When thoughts run through time and space,

When breaths connect with the spirits,

When dance steps narrate the civilization,

Inspiration and Glory is born to celebrate the great moments.

This first Chinese symphony ballet suite with majestic passion,

retrospecting the spirit origin empower the everlasting nation,

pays tribute to the roots and soul of the Chinese civilization...

First Movement: The Sky Rescuer

In the old and wonderful Chinese gallery,

the image of Nvwa always exists everywhere.

Born in the suffering lives, she saves the people from the fire;

Believe in the ideal and youth, she saves the state from danger.

Then, the tilting sky back to righted,

Time runs in cycle, spring returns to earth and everything goes in renewal;

Then, the broken land got healed,

Mountains remain high, rivers run fast and all the days lived into forever…

Second Movement: The Mountain Bearer

Difficulties and dangers all come from the vast mountains,

Persistence and tenacity originated from the Yugong spirit.

From his own action to the inheritance of the descendants,

The gathering strength opens up a broad road on the earth.

Thus, the power of life burst forth,

Everlasting from generation to generation;

Thus, the banner of spirit lifts high,

Turning the poverty into happiness and beaty…
