The Flight of the Jade Bird
Singapore Arts Festival 2012

About the Show

The Flight of the Jade Bird is a modern fable that links cultures, crossing dimensions between the material and the spiritual. It creates a dialogue among art forms, the spoken word, the sung text, the dance across meaning, the musical line and the harmonic universe that overarches our dissonant lives.

Part Concert, Part Opera, Part Story-telling this musical treat tightly interwoven with Dance, conceived, composed, written and directed by Mark Chan, features a galaxy of stars from Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Taipei and Malaysia.

Specially commissioned as the Opening Show for the 2012 Singapore Arts Festival, this may be Mark Chan’s most enjoyable work.
