ROME, March 12 (Xinhua) -- Take a famous European literary work, put artists from Italy, China and Germany together on it, and finally add ancient and modern music traditions. From such path, a new experimental play was born and put on major stage of the Italian capital -- the Argentina Theatre -- from Tuesday to Sunday this week.

Johann Wolfgang Goethe's masterpiece "Faust" tale was performed by the artists of the Peking Opera, with music and arrangements from both Italian and Chinese composers.

The play is a co-production between Italy's Emilia Romagna Theatre Foundation and the China National Peking Opera, and was born out of an idea of German director Anna Peschke in 2014.

Authors include Chinese playwright Li Meini, and director Xu Mengke, Italian composers Luigi Ceccarelli and Alessandro Cipriani, and Chinese composer Chen Xiaoman.

The experiment marked the first partnership of the kind, with a European tale put on stage by Peking Opera artists, and foreign composers cooperating with a Chinese colleague to try to create "a new language."

"We come from a different musical culture, so we had to study the tradition of the Chinese Opera theatre," Cipriani told Xinhua.

"This means we had to understand deeply what were the possibilities of building a bridge between our work -- as contemporary composers, who work with electronic music -- and, at the same time, to be close to a very different way of making music."

Since its debut in the city of Bologna in Oct. 2015, the play has been performed some 80 times across Italy, and was shown in Beijing and New York as well. In mid-May, it will be performed for 13 days in Germany.

Rehearsal and set up of the play were all developed in China, organizers said. The four Chinese actors on the stage were accompanied by seven musicians, three of which Italians and four Chinese.

While taking the form of Peking Opera, this production of the "Faust" tried to keep aesthetics and storytelling traditions from both the West and the East together. As such -- besides being up to the beauty of such a renowned tale -- a major artistic challenge was to find a "new language" between the refined art of the Peking Opera and Western modern music.

"When you meet a new culture, you find different standards, and you realize that your rules are just arbitrary, in some way... The wonderful thing is being able to find those new rules that put all things together," composer Ceccarelli told Xinhua.

"It has been a hard job, yet in some way technology was of help, because with electronic music it is much easier to bring together sounds that are very different from each other," he added.

The New York Knicks' latest tough week ended on a high note on Sunday as Carmelo Anthony and company shocked the San Antonio Spurs 94-90 at Madison Square Garden.

A victory over the second-best team in the NBA was a welcome change of fortune for the Knicks Camiseta Filipe Luis Atletico Madrid , who are languishing well out of playoff contention in the Eastern Conference amid tensions between Anthony and Knicks President Phil Jackson.

A feud between owner James Dolan and popular ex-Knick Charles Oakley also boiled over in ugly fashion on Wednesday.

Anthony said he was doing his best to ignore the noise.

""I'm out here playing basketball, trying to enjoy the game of basketball,"" he said. ""Whatever happens outside the basketball court does not concern me.""

Instead, -Anthony said, he and his teammates were focused on delivering the kind of consistent performance they've had trouble sustaining through four quarters this season.

Anthony scored 25 points and pulled down seven rebounds, Derrick Rose added 18 and Kristaps Porzingis contributed 16 with seven rebounds and four blocked shots to help the Knicks end a four-game skid.

New York came up big defensively, too, holding the Spurs to a season-low 36.3 percent shooting in the upset.

Kawhi Leonard paced the Spurs with 36 points and LaMarcus -Aldridge added 15, but veteran point guard Tony Parker missed all three of his field goal attempts and finished with zero points and four assists in 31 minutes on the floor.

A jump shot from Leonard cut New York's lead to 88-86 with 1:43 to play, but Anthony responded with two straight baskets that rebuilt the Knicks' lead to 92-86 with 33 seconds remaining. The Spurs wouldn't get the deficit -below four points the rest of the way.

In Toronto, Kentavious Caldwell--Pope scored five of his 21 points in the final minute as the Detroit Pistons erased a 16-point fourth-quarter deficit to beat the Raptors 102-101.

Caldwell-Pope made a 16-foot (4.88-meter) jumper and followed it with a three-pointer with 13.2 seconds left to give the Pistons a one-point lead.

Toronto's DeMar DeRozan missed a fadeaway jump shot as time expired.

The Raptors, fourth in the Eastern Conference, lost for the 10th time in 14 games.

Andrew Wiggins scored 27 points and Karl--Anthony Towns contributed 22 as the Minnesota Timberwolves rolled past the injury-depleted -Chicago Bulls 117-89 in Minneapolis.

The Bulls were without starters Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade as well as backups Nikola Mirotic and Paul Zipser. The Timberwolves, who had lost five of their previous six games, took full advantage to give coach Tom Thibodeau a sweep of the season series against his former team.

In Sacramento, DeMarcus Cousins scored 28 points, grabbed 14 -rebounds and handed out 17 assists in the Kings' 105-99 win over the New -Orleans Pelicans.
