Main character vibes indeed–jump into whole new worlds with The Main Character!
All good things must come to an end and this week marks the last of our Curated Itineraries. To finish things off with a bang, The Main Character brings two exciting routes with stories unfolding in each event that give off main character vibes. Available from 26 October to 12 November 2023, this one’s for those looking to fully immerse yourselves in tales as old as time (and some with surprising new twists!).
Folklore passed down through generations stays alive in Route 1.
Are you ready to step back into fictional worlds of the past? Route 1 features a line-up of events that will whisk you back to centuries past in their full mythic glory. Amp up the romance factor with the Butterfly Lovers Violin Concerto (10 to 11 November 2023), a 20th-century masterpiece inspired by the timeless Chinese legend of star-crossed lovers brought to life by Singapore Symphony Artist-In-Residence Chloe Chua alongside the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. Switch things up with The Monkey King (10 to 11 November 2023) for a fusion of authentic Chinese opera and cutting-edge theatre, featuring top-notch actors showcasing kung-fu skills and humour. Wrap up your journey outside the Victoria Theatre & Concert Hall for a gander at the majestic calligraphic sculpture “创” Chuan.
Route 2 is the answer to a fun-filled family day out.
For those who prefer wild and wacky twists to beloved classics, Route 2’s for you. Hop into WhirlWIND! A Musical Adventure (12 November 2023) for a whimsical night of chamber music with a touch of French charm and two works of Mozart's musical mischief before letting Prokofiev's dramatic ballet sparks fly in a wind octet arrangement of Romeo & Juliet. Next, step into a fantastical multiverse where iconic fairy-tale characters like The Witch, The Wolf, and more cause delightful chaos in Pangdemonium's Into The Woods (1 to 12 November 2023). On your final stop, catch a glimpse of Performing Care at the Esplanade tunnel, a captivating video triptych exploring the art of care, resisting societal pressures, and the imagining of embodied movements as tools for empathic understandings of care.
