As part of global celebrations marking the centenary year of the legendary Begum Akhtar, Third Half Theatre is happy to once again be associated with Malhaar in bringing you Haaye Akhtari, a soulful blend of Music, Dance, and the Theatre.
The show will feature Begum Akhtar’s most famous ghazals, thumris, and dadras, some of which are innovatively rendered in Malhaar’s signature choir style and accompanied by classical Kathak dance. Interwoven through the music and the dance is the theatre which will depict the life story of her journey as a young school student performing extempore to the fully realized Malika e Ghazal—or Queen of Ghazals—Begum Akhtar.
Haaye Akhtari will be staged at Madinat Theatre, Souk Madinat Jumeirah, Mina A'Salam on September 18 and 19 at 7:30 p.m. The spoken language of the show is Hindi/Urdu and features Indian traditional music in various languages set to classical as well as contemporary rhythms.
Tickets: Platinum AED 350, Gold AED 200, Silver AED 100, and Bronze AED 75.
Tickets available at Madinat Theatre Box Office, Madinat website, and Platinum List online. For further information, please call 050-6882652.
See you there!
