I call Architecture Frozen Music

by cecylia on February 27, 2013

Melbourne experienced its desperately-needed torrential downpour yesterday. The thirsty land and parched ground welcomed the heavy heaven drops, but a photoshoot I was uber excited about (was up until midnight the night before taping shoes after vetting for 10 hours) got cancelled and rescheduled. Instead of indulging in disappointment, I decided to take a more positive outlook. God sent the rain to water our gardens and to wash our cars! Immediately after this change of attitude, another opportunity to collaborate came up and of course, the sun also began to shine. So I spent the hot and sticky afternoon driving around Melbourne getting ready for the next photoshoot. The last thing on my mind was deciding what to wear at night to the opening of the dance spectacular ‘Peony Pavilion” at the Palais. But thankfully, I was able to debut my new Keegan peplum top and be able to keep in theme with this week’s SS13 trend: Blue & White. (Please see my previous post if you have no idea what I’m talking about). To see more of Keegan’s designs head [HERE].

The dance drama was breath-takingly beautiful. I was so impressed by the orchestral music, set designs and costumes, not to mention the dancing! Fusing ballet moves with eastern music was quite genius. I’m not ashamed to say that in one particular scene my tears welled up and in another I shrieked in glee.  The central message of the show is that Love really can conquer Death! If you’re curious, there is one performance left on Wednesday night! I hope you don’t miss out. Special thanks to my dear friend Leeyong for putting up with my unending questions (I accidentally left my glasses in the car so missed out on some of the finer details) and for taking these snaps.

What do you think? Can Love really conquer all?

昨天墨尔本经历了它急需的倾盆大雨。口渴的干地愉快地欢迎了每一滴雨水。原来我有一个 photoshoot但因为下雨被取消了。昨晚我到凌晨一点还在为 photoshoot作准备。听到消息有点失望,但我想起着大雨是神给我们的礼物,忧愁立即消失了。并且我们的车和花园也需要浇灌。想着想着,太阳露出了笑脸,另一位摄影师联系了我。下午我顺着阳光为着下个photoshoot作准备。在我脑海中的最后一件事是决定今晚穿什么衣服去参加“牡丹亭”的演出。但我不能不穿Keegan 的白色上衣。这位墨尔本设计师的衣服很有个性。

“牡丹亭”的演出让我始料未及。美妙的管弦乐,舞台设计和服饰使我留下了深刻的印象。东方的故事与西方的芭蕾舞蹈和谐地融合。一幕我差点流出眼泪,另一幕我笑得肚子痛。舞剧的中心信息是 爱能胜过死亡。多谢我的朋友Leeyong的耐心,回答我无休止的问题,并为我拍这些照片。

What a pretty blue skirt! We get a lot of rain here in Oregon, but it’s more of a constant drizzle as opposed to intermittent downpours. Thanks for your comment on my blog… checked out your playground post- so fun!

cheers Stephanie! Melbourne is usually reknowned for its drizzles but the tap isn’t very leaky this summer hence why we really needed the rain :) xx
