The Wild Rice production is based on Henrik Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People, and explores the issues of politics and power. Dr Thomas Chee intends to go public with an exposé on the bacteria-infested water supply in his town, which is marketed as a world-class resort spa, but this decision turns his community against him – including his own brother, the town mayor.
The Studios: fifty
The Esplanade’s special season of The Studios includes 50 of Singapore’s theatre works from the 1960s to the present. Five monumental plays, including Emily of Emerald Hill and Off Centre, are restaged as full productions, while 45 other works are showcased as dramatised readings.
Inspired by the Norse legend of Ragnarok, this work explores the themes of identity, power and illness that plague the global gay community. The story centres on the idealistic Dan, whose life turns into a nightmare when a man from his past comes back to haunt him with a deadly obsession.
Balanchine | Millepied
George Balanchine and his former student Benjamin Millepied are French composers and choreographers from the New York City Ballet. Balanchine’s 1947 work Le Palais de Cristal and Millepied’s Daphnis and Chloé are screened here this month as part of a video series by the Paris Opera Ballet.
First performed by the Paris Opera Ballet in 1981, this ballet follows the story of the idealistic Don Quixote and his loyal squire. Audiences are invited to journey through his encounters with characters like Basilio and his lover Kitri. Performed in French with English subtitles as part of a series of the Paris Opera Ballet screenings.
