Butterfly Lovers

Butterfly Lovers premiered in 1958 and was Artistic Director Santha Bhaskar’s first full-length production in Singapore. Having just arrived from India a few years earlier, she was already taken up by the multicultural atmosphere and the ease with which the various ethnic arts groups got along. Watching the Chinese film version of the tale sealed the deal and inspired her to stage the work. With the multi-ethnic students she had, she gave audiences then a Bharatanatyam lens to the Chinese folktale.

Bhaskar’s Arts Academy now reimagines this work more than six decades later, this time choreographed by Santha Bhaskar’s daughter, US-based Meenakshy Bhaskar who brings a different perspective to the work. Infusing classical Chinese dance movements, this remake also features music composition by world-renowned Rajkumar Bharathi flavoured with sounds of the Ruan by local artiste Neil Chua.
