Kronos Quartet, Rinde Eckert & Van-Anh Vo

FULLY-STAGED PRODUCTION Jonathan Berger, composer Harriet Scott Chessman, libretto It was nearly 50 years ago that American soldiers massacred hundreds of unarmed Vietnamese villagers at My Lai. Kronos Quartet's fully staged collaboration with composer Jonathan Berger and novelist Harriet Scott Chessman revisits the horrors of that day and its aftermath, from the perspective of the heroic helicopter pilot who tried to intervene. Berger's "richly evocative" and "hauntingly beautiful" (San Francisco Chronicle) score blends Rinde Eckert's expressive voice with string quartet augmented by traditional Vietnamese instruments played by Van Anh Vo, and an electronic soundscape of helicopters, voices, and snippets of American blues. #BerkeleyRADICAL #VaultingWalls
