Butterfly Lovers

First premiered in 1958, Butterfly Lovers was pioneering dance doyenne Santha Bhaskar’s first full-length performance in Singapore. More than six decades later, Bhaskar’s Art Academy now re-imagines Butterfly Lovers by infusing Chinese classical dance movements into the performance.

Choreographed by Mrs Bhaskar’s daughter, Meenakshy Bhaskar and featuring music from the world-renowned Rajkumar Bharathi and local artist Neil Chua, this unique cross-cultural play brings a new perspective to the classic Chinese folktale of two tragic lovers.
