Theatrically thrilling and complex! India’s Kathakali dance form is exemplar of international theater heritage. Guru Sadanam Balakrishnan, a legend among dancers, presents the glorious love tale of Nala and Damayanti, from the grand epic of the Mahabharata. The live orchestra of musicians on vocal and the percussion instruments of the chenda and maddalam make a truly unique performance. Experience the majesty of Kathakali through the dynamics of this mythological story.
