The Mazu Chronicle is an innovative symphonic dance-theatre performance featuring orchestral and choral music by Singaporean composers that pays homage to Asian folklore and the maritime pioneers of Singapore.
Myth and reality interweave in a magical tale inspired by real-life stories of early seafarers of the Maritime Silk Road and the legend of Mazu, the patron goddess of the sea. Immerse in the visual spectacle of a stage transformed into a vessel that traverses the landscape of memory and imagination.
This special one-time only performance is helmed by Cultural Medallion recipients, Maestro Lim Yau; and Choreographer Angela Liong: the artistic team behind the successful sold-out production in 2013, The Rite of Spring : A People's Stravinsky.
Be inspired by a collaboration that incorporates the creative energies of seniors and youth from the community, with professional dancers from The ARTS FISSION Company and musicians from The Philharmonic Orchestra and The Philharmonic Chamber Choir. This collaboration features the works of Leong Yoon Pin, Phoon Yew Tien, Er Yenn Chwen and Zechariah Goh Toh Chai. Together, they represent the establishment of 50 years of composition in Singapore.
