Kronos Quartet: My Lai

Performing Arts - Music: Center for Southeast Asia Studies | March 4 | 7-8:30 p.m. |  Zellerbach Hall

 Cal Performances

Kronos Quartet’s fully-staged collaboration with composer Jonathan Berger and librettist Harriet Scott Chessman explores the aftermath of My Lai—a tragic episode in the Vietman War when American soldiers massacred hundreds of unarmed villagers—from the perspective of the helicopter pilot who tried to intervene. Berger’s score blends Rinde Eckert’s voice with the strings of the Kronos Quartet augmented by traditional Vietnamese instruments played by Vân-Ánh Võ, and an electronic soundscape of helicopters, voices, and snippets of American blues.
