A timeless and epic tale of love, loss and redemption, this spectacular dance drama in Hindi with English surtitles, features a cast of over 40 performers.
Subrang Arts returns to the Albany Theatre with its latest stage adaptation of one of India's best-loved literary plays Shakuntala; a spellbinding classic packed with charm, colourful costumes, vibrant dances and spectacular multi-media projections.
Shakuntala faces a challenging life: abandoned in a forest as a baby, then forgotten by her husband, King Dushyanta, due to a curse placed upon her. When facing the prospect of raising her son alone, she learns to gain the strength she needs and raises her son Bharat who later becomes the first Emperor of India.
