Violin concerto of Butterfly Lovers in 5 Parts

Butterfly Lovers is a classic Chinese literature of tragic romance like William Shakespeare's masterpiece Romeo and Juliet. It is now best known as a violin concerto which is available, among other media, in Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4 and Part 5 in YouTube in the Internet. I began to enjoy Butterfly Lovers' violin concerto since the early 1990s. When I toured Hangzhou in China last year, I also watched a modern Butterfly Lovers ballet-plus-acrobatics performance in a theme park.
