WEDDING OF RAMA AND SITA (article first published : 2007-03-25)

Based in Reservoir Hills, The South African Opera and Ballet Company will present The Wedding of Rama and Sita in the Playhouse Drama.

Presented in the style of an opera, it will be the first of its kind in South Africa and promises to be an experience of rich cultural diversity.

The opera illustrates episodes from the birth of Rama to his marriage to Sita Devi. The production will highlight the selflessness and simplicity of Rama, his perfect obedience and reverence for his elders. The production is aimed at people of all cultures and creeds as it highlights the importance of morality and the way family values should be implemented in society.

Scripted in India by Padma Narayan with Tansen Nepaul in charge of music production, The Wedding of Rama and Sita will feature performers from the dance institutes of Smeetha Maharaj and Shrimathi Manormoney.

Performances will take place in the Playhouse Drama from March 30 to April 1. Book at Computicket.
