Singapore International Festival of the Arts

August 11, 2016 - September 17, 2016

Inaugurated in 1977, the annual arts festival went on a hiatus after 2012 and returned in 2014 under the baton of Festival Director Ong Keng Sen. With the mission to artistically reinvigorate and transform the festival, Ong renamed it Singapore International Festival of Arts (SIFA). He initiated The O.P.E.N., a pre-festival of ideas to engage diverse audiences with the ideas, issues and themes of SIFA. Today, SIFA is the premier national performing arts festival managed by the Arts House Limited and commissioned by the National Arts Council. It aims to inspire through great international and Singapore artistic experiences in performance, theatre, dance and music.

Paradise Interrupted

July 13, 2016 - July 16, 2016

In this arresting new opera by acclaimed composer Huang Ruo, traditional Chinese and contemporary Western idioms intertwine within an exquisite setting by visual artist Jennifer Wen Ma, known for her Emmy Award–winning work on the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The story entwines the tale of Eve’s expulsion from the Garden of Eden with a dream episode from the Chinese opera “The Peony Pavilion,” in which a woman imagines an erotic encounter with an idealized lover.

Paradise Interrupted

September 8, 2017 - September 10, 2017

Reimagining and fusing the biblical story of Eve’s expulsion from the Garden of Eden and the vivid dream of Du Liniang in The Peony Pavilion, Paradise Interrupted opens with a woman alone onstage, dreaming of an erotic encounter with her ideal lover. This dream triggers a psychological journey through a surreal, interactive garden made from dynamic paper sculptures.

This kunqu opera was co-produced by the National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (Weiwuying), New York Lincoln Center and Spoleto Festival USA. Three workshops that give the audience a chance to interact with the opera's director and performers will be held in the arts center in Kaohsiung Sept. 8-10.
