If you haven't read my previous writeup on Melaka Alive yet, do read it here (Melaka Alive - Melaka Night Cultural Performance). This new site-specific theatre show is drawing tourists to the old city of Melaka while celebrating the state’s rich and diverse history.
Set in and amongst the glorious heritage buildings of UNESCO Heritage Melaka, Melaka Alive tells the rich 600 year-old story of the state through an innovative and interactive concept theatre that leads the audience through the various stages of Melaka’s evolution, from the arrival of Parameswara, through the periods of Portuguese and Dutch colonization and finally to current day Melaka, where many cultures blend seamlessly in a true modern melting pot.

Melaka Alive, be sure to catch it the next time you're in the vicinity. Personally I'm not an avid historical follower, but at Melaka Alive, it did teach me a thing or two of Melaka's history in a fun way. With the opening of The Pirate Adventure, Melaka Alive just became even more attractive.
