Draupadi - The Voice of Dignity

Third Half Theatre is proud to be associated with Malhaar in their musical 'Draupadi - The Voice of Dignity'. It promises to be a spectacle of Music, Dance, and Theatre with classical as well as contemporary influences.

On the one hand you have the music, steeped in the best Indian traditions, yet with windows thrown open to influences from all over the world, old and contemporary. Then you have the dances, again born from the rigour of classical training, but tempered with modern and even post-modern touches. And then there is the theatre, trying to give it all a breathable, believable context. 

A lot of folk have enquired about the language of the show--the spoken dialogue is in English, however a large portion of the show is music and dance, of which the music is mostly Indian traditional music in various languages set to classical as well as contemporary rhythms.

'Draupadi...' will be staged at Madinat Theatre, Souk Madinat Jumeirah, Mina A'Salam on May 23 and 24 at &:30 p.m. 

Tickets priced as follows: Platinum AED 150, Gold AED 100 and Silver AED 75

Tickets available at Time Out Tickets, Madinat Theatre Box Office and Select Liali outlets (Meadows, Ibn Battuta, Spinneys - Trade Center Road and Mercato Mall).  For further information, please call 055-1013652.

Read coverage for the show in the Friday magazine and in The National. See you over the weekend!
