Analía Farfan performed "The White Haired Girl", one of the most important Chinese opera-ballet dance pieces. Director, Mr. Steven Fang Fei , had seen Analía performing this piece previously, and asked her to deliver that beautiful story again, but this time at the Lincoln Center. He selected Analía to do this opera-ballet not only because of her dance talents but also because of her outstanding dramatic skills. Analía is one of the few artists on stage who is not Chinese but was still chosen to represent the ancient culture in this beautiful show. It was the second time that Analía got to perform this piece, her first time was a couple months earlier at the World trade Center for the celebration of the 2022 Chinese New Year.

The concert was a fantastic feast of festival dance and music. It was amazing to experience how vibrant, exciting, and profound classical Chinese culture can be. It was a brilliant artistic celebration of China's rich cultural heritage. In this show, their culture is in its fullest expression, through classic stories of love and loss, of humor and heroic deeds. All of these stories come to life through the Asian Symphony together with the performers, encouraging an exquisite cultural exchange.

The program features an iconic lineup of famous artists, starring soloists include the New York City Ballet Principal Dance Chun Wai Chan, American Ballet Theater Soloist Zhong-Jing Fang, USA Rhythmic Gymnastics National Team member Serena Lu, Erthu Artists Jun Chen & Yi Miao Chen, Guzhend Artist Zhongbei Wu, vocalist Jillian Stewart, stylized Flamenco dancer Paloma de Vega, ballet dancers Analía Farfan and her dance-partner Cooper Everson, and Dr. Lisa Lantz as Guest Conductor.

¨The White-haired Girl" (The piece that Analía performed) is a famous 1940 Chinese opera-ballet act, originally written by He Jingzhi and Ding Yi with music composed by Yan Jinxuan. This Opera has been adapted into film and several ballets in subsequent decades. Inspired by a collection of folktales which vividly depict the plight of woman peasants during the 1929's and 30's, "The White Haired Girl" centered on Xier's struggles to repay her father's debt and transformation into goddess-like figure.

Analía dedicated this piece to Mr. Steven Fang Fei, the Director of the Asian Cultural Symphony of the USA and to his wife Ginger, in gratitude for the wonderful opportunity they gave her to present this ballet in such a prestigious venue such as the Lincoln center in New York City.

'This highly personal story would be nothing without a deep connection to family. Francisca Tapia's (Gloria Fajardo) voice was phenomenal but her acting was so realistic she moved the audience from being slightly annoyed with her to being frustrated when Gloria refuses to speak to her daughter, and finally to empathizing with her as she worries about her daughter's life. She did a magnificent job at being a stubborn, misunderstood, mother. When it is finally revealed that she had given up on her own dreams for the sake of her family the audience was so endeared by her acting they couldn't help but have a change of heart.' BWW.
