A beautiful princess. A tale of filial love. A legend of Singapore.
With the mesmerising rhythm of Bharatanatyam and graceful allure of Javanese dance intricately woven with traditional folk arts of wayang kulit, Radin Mas is set to be an unforgettable performance that celebrates classical art forms amid breathtaking contemporary set design befitting the iconic Victoria Theatre.
Radin Mas is spearheaded by Meenakshy Bhaskar, Artistic Director and daughter of the late Mrs Santha Bhaskar, together with Cultural Medallion recipient and dear friend of Mrs Bhaskar, Madam Som Said as Advisor.
Based on the legend of a beautiful Javanese princess, this cross-cultural collaboration will touch the heart and stir the soul, as one discovers a heart-wrenching story of forbidden love, jealousy, bravery and sacrifice. Journey with us and discover the story of Radin Mas Ayu as she makes a fortuitous escape from her prejudiced grandfather only to find herself in the hands of a resentful stepmother.
The revered folk arts of wayang kulit and unique horse dances from both Javanese and Tamil cultures – kuda kepang and poikal kuthirai – feature alongside traditional Indian and Javanese music to bring this riveting tale to life.
We are proud to collaborate with Sri Warisan Som Said Performing Arts to bring you a production made with love, about love.
