Ravi Shankar's long-time collaborator and Sukanya conductor David Murphy has teamed up with the Bagri Foundation to create an online miniseries giving an introduction to the foundations of Indian classical music, and exploring its deep ties to Western musical traditions. Watch the introduction to the series here.
We're enormously excited about being the first to perform Indian music legend Ravi Shankar's only opera Sukanya next month, alongside an international cast of singers and dancers. We'll be giving the world premiere at Curve Leicester, followed by performances at Manchester's Lowry, Birmingham Symphony Hall, and Southbank Centre in London.
