NEW YORK - The Chinese music drama Overlord was staged on Thursday at the Asia Society in New York.

The drama is a music-focused, interdisciplinary performance created by pipa (a four-stringed Chinese lute) player Yu Bing, who is joined by an ensemble of some of the most talented young musicians in China, playing both Chinese and western instruments.

Overlord is inspired by two traditional Chinese Pipa masterpieces: Ambush on All Sides and King Chu Doffs His Armor. It tells the life story of the Chinese warlord Xiang Yu and uses music to explore his inner world at different moments of his life.
