The White-haired Girl (Baimaonü 白毛女)
Tan Dun’s “Red Forecast” ends with idyllic sounds in the woodwinds, and with a stage “washed in red.” Tan Dun thus repeats exactly the typical final apotheosis as found in the model works of the Cultural Revolution: they invariably end with spheric sounds, a tableau of heroes and a stage all washed in red as can be seen here.
