Shilparamam is presenting a Kuchipudi dance ballet, Parvati Parinayam, by the disciples of Vendantam Satya Narasimha Sastry, on 20th December. The ballet will be performed by 10 dancers, with Pasumarti Mrutyunjay Sarma as Lord Shiva, Y Lalitha Sindoori as Parvati, G Siddendra Varaprasad as Manmatha, Alekhya as Rati, Gangadhar as Bringeswara, and Alanya, Anjali, Veena Tejaswini and Indrakshi as Parvati's friends.
The orchestra will have Vendantam Satya Narasimha Sastry for the vocals and nattuvangam, vocal support by Shanthi, Bhanuprasad on the mridangam, Shiva on the violin and Harinatha Sastry on the tabla. The choreography is by Vendantam Satya Narasimha Sastry.
Parvati Parinayam is about Parvati's marriage to Lord Shiva, and the events leading to the marriage. Impressed by Shiva, who is always in deep meditation, Parvati tries her best to divert his attention. Eventually Manmathaa arrives, and promises Parvati that he will disturb the Lord and divert his attention towards her. He pulls out a love arrow and hit the Lord with it. Enraged at this, Shiva reduces Manmada into ashes.
Coming to know of this, Manmatha's wife Rati pleads with Shiva and convinces him to bring Manmatha back to life, but Shiva tells her that Manmatha cannot be visible to anyone except Rati. After coming back to life, Manmatha explains to Shiva the devotion and love of Parvati for him, which impresses the latter leading to him marrying her.
The dance ballet is choreographed by Vendantam Satya Narasimha Sastry, son of the legendary dance guru Vendantam Radheshyam. Born in a family known for highly traditional Kuchipudi dancers and where the art comes as heritage, Narasimha Sarma learnt initially from his father, and thereafter from Vempati Chinnasatyam.
He has a double diploma in Kuchipudi dance and a diploma in mridangam from the Telugu University, Kuchipudi Kalakshetra. He has performed at several places all over India, along with his father and his guru. He has an experience of 15 years in dancing and 9 years in teaching.
