19 July 2007 - Opening night of the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of King Lear at Singapore's Esplanade Theatres on the Bay. Ian McKellen in title role.
In one word. Astounding.
Two thumbs up, 10-min standing ovation, utterly spent audience. Full-house. An almost four-hour epic journey to the kernel of humanity and madness. Catharsis in this island state.
