'Everlasting Classics': Chinese singer presents musical rendition of ancient love poem
Chinese singer Zhou Shen breathed new life into an 800-year-old eulogy of love in the latest edition of variety show "Everlasting Classics." The lyrics are from the masterpiece of Yuan Haowen, an outstanding literary figure of the Jin Dynasty (1115-1234). Yuan composed the poem "Tomb of Wild Geese" (to the tune of "Groping for Fish") at the age of 16, inspired by a story of a pair of wild geese.
The third season of "Everlasting Classics" premiered on China Central Television on January 26. The show has gained popularity since its first season in 2018 by interpreting traditional Chinese literature and poetry in a modern way.
