On the eve of the 50th anniversary of the horrific 1968 massacre of more than 500 Vietnamese villagers by American soldiers in My Lai, Vietnam, a piece of music to commemorate the event will be performed at the Singapore International Festival of Arts 2017.

Themed “enchantment”, plays presented at the festival will feature beautiful characteristics of modern society such as tolerance, generosity and passion for life in order to inspire young generations to create a more beautiful world.
