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.
After a terrible mistake leaves the ancient sage Chyavana blinded, the beautiful princess Sukanya finds herself marrying for the sake of her kingdom. As a pair of swaggering, meddling gods watch this unlikely union blossom, will love grow in the strangest of circumstances?
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.
