Misc. Notes This is an arrangement for Clarinet in A and piano of a famous Chinese song from ShaoXing Opera:Butterfly Lovers(Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai, which is known as the oriental "Romeo and Juliet"). The opera is based on a sad love story. The main characters-Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai were in love with each other, but due to a big gap between the wealth and fame of their families, they were not allowed to be together. After Liang Shanbo was informed that Zhu Yingtai was forced to marry another rich man, he died in pain. Yingtai ran into Shanbo's tomb. Finally the two lovers turned into butterflies and stayed with each other forever.
