About the Play

It is said that every story that can possibly be told has been told in the Mahabharat. We will stage the greatest epic ever written by imagining it with fanciful costumes, sets and props, presenting it with live music and dance, and setting it in an undefined era that could be modern, ancient or anywhere in between. This will be the largest production in Naatak’s 23 years. There will be as many as 50 people on stage, weaving theater, dance and music into an intricate presentation.

Original music composed by Nachiketa Yakkundi, and performed live by Nachiketa and team.
Original dance choreography by Archana Kamath, Soumya Agastya, Pragya Dasgupta and Nisha Natraj

MAHABHARAT is part of Naatak’s 2018 Season.

Language: Hindi, with supertitles in English
Run-time: 2.5 hours (includes a 15-min intermission)
