First presented at Esplanade’s Huayi – Chinese Festival of Arts in 2014, Ruan Lingyu’s The Goddess – A Silent Film Concert received an enthusiastic response by all who experienced it. Released in 1934, The Goddess depicts the selfless love of a mother, and is legendary Chinese actress Ruan Lingyu’s most representative work. Now, the film is set afresh to music by Singapore composer Law Wai Lun and Hong Kong composer Lincoln Lo. Introduced with a Prelude composed by Law Wai Lun, the presentation showcases Ruan Lingyu’s realistic portrayal of a mother coupled with SCO’s picturesque orchestration, bringing out the beauty of humanity and life.
