"My Lai" - Kronos Quartet, Rinde Eckert, and Vân-Ánh Vanessa Võ

Jonathan Berger, composer
Harriet Scott Chessman, librettist
Brian H. Scott, lighting designer

Hancher has enjoyed a long and creatively fruitful relationship with both the Kronos Quartet and UI alum Rinde Eckert. For My Lai, the string quartet and the vocalist come together with Vietnamese multi-instrumentalist Vân Ánh Vanessa Võ to lay bare the tragedy of the 1968 massacre at My Lai. The story of the destruction of the village at the hands of American soldiers is told from the perspective of Hugh Thompson, a helicopter pilot who tried to intervene and who was vilified for reporting what he had witnessed.
