Concert Information

Ravi Shankar's Only Opera: A mythical love story told through music & dance

Taken from the legendary Sanskrit texts of the Mahābhārata, the story of Sukanya has
been brought to life in this innovative production with music by Indian music legend
Ravi Shankar and combines traditional Indian instruments with Western orchestra
and singers, conducted by David Murphy.

This performance is directed by Curve Associate Director Suba Das and
uniquely unites dance choreographed by the Aakash Odedra Company, production
by the Royal Opera House and the musicians of the London Philharmonic Orchestra plus BBC Singers.
