SINGAPORE - Small-scale live performances will be held at selected venues from Sept 11, the National Arts Council (NAC) said in an advisory issued on Thursday (Sept 3) evening.

Trials have been scheduled at venues managed by the NAC, Esplanade, Singapore Chinese Orchestra, Singapore Symphony Orchestra, Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre and Arts House Limited. This is a cautious step towards the re-opening of live performance venues which have been closed since March 26, in a bid to curb the spread of Covid-19.
