A captivating performance conveying in a contemporary blend of musical theatre and storytelling the legend of Mahsuri:


Accused of adultery, the beautiful maiden Mahsuri pleaded her innocence, but no one believed her. Sentenced to death, she was stabbed with a ceremonial keris. With white blood flowing from the wound, signifying her innocence, Mahsuri cursed the island, afflicting Langkawi with bad luck for seven generations.


Langkawi indeed experienced a long period of tribulations from a Siamese invasion to a series of droughts and floods - emerging as a thriving travel destination only seven generations later.
