Mahabharata Musical

Kalapi Jani for Gita Productions UK Ltd in co-operation with Sadler's Wells Theatre present:

MAHABHARATA - India's Greatest Epic


Mahabharata is a new piece of dance theatre, initiated by Swiss producer and songtext writer Guido von Arx, featuring an international ensemble of 27 dancers, singers and musicians. They create the story of the Mahabharata as seen through the eyes of Draupadi; a woman who defies her destiny to become wife to five brothers and the catalyst for the world's most terrible war.

Directed by Stuart Wood and written by Olivier Award-winning lyricist Stephen Clark, Mahabharata features a specially composed music score by multi-award winning Nitin Sawhney.

Mahabharata revisists the classic tale with a stunning contemporary sensibility. An exhilarating synthesis of theatre, music, dance, magic and puppetry, Mahabharata is a total theatre experience.
