Izaara’s Mystical Myths was another spectacular and novel concept created and produced by its creative director and founder, Monisha Charan. It was uniquely Singapore and showcased its ethnic diversity and racial harmony as 4 different cultures came together under producer Monisha Charan.
The Production was a bouquet of four plays that were all folklore and legends from four different cultures. Despite their diverse origins they conveyed a similar message of myths often being shrouded in the supernatural which often had no scientific reasoning, yet the belief traversed generations.
Directed by four local directors, including Monisha who co-scripted and directed the Indian play Aravan, all brought with them a cultural diversity and mystical element true to the concept into each story.
With captivating stories from the Indian, Chinese, Malay and European cultures and a talented cast from Singapore’s theatre and television, it absolutely enthralled its mixed audiences and won rave reviews. From comments like, absolutely loved it , to great concept, fantastic production and pure entertainment , I couldn’t have asked for any more critic opinions!
As we say in showbiz audience is god and Mystical Myths seemed to have charmed and entertained the God’s !!

Risk-taking in theatre and presenting something new is always fraught with doubts and uncertainties. Yet it is this risk taking which breaks the mould and discovers new possibilities.
Monisha Charan, your Mystical Myths stood out due to its distinct vision of reaching out to the local audiences. Bringing the Chinese, the Malay, the Indian and the Western plays together was a beautiful weave that represented Singapore’s inherent fabric. I absolutely loved the ‘lady white serpent’, ‘the tape’ gave me goosebumps, the malay story brought a twisted taste of anger, dismay and pity (the actors were outstanding!), and the Indian myth Aravan was one I had not heard of before. Loved the grace Siddhi and her partner brought to the show. Take a bow Monisha! Well done.
