Sadanam Balakrishnan TroupeNalacharitam

May 2, 2015  ·  Zellerbach Theatre


Theatrically thrilling and complex! Indian dance legend Sadanam Balakrishnan showcases the classical Indian dance form of Kathakali, a rich combination of ballet, opera, masque and pantomime that’s rarely performed in the U.S. Accompanied by several vocalists and percussionists, Balakrishnan’s troupe presents Nalacharitam, a mythological love story that explores how destiny’s unfortunate events can bring about greater happiness in the future.
