Sri Rama Gana Sabha is organising the 42nd Sri Thyagaraja Aradhana Music Festival
from 20th to 31st January at New Nallakunta Ramalayam. Geetha Ganesan and her disciples will be presenting Rukmini Kalyanam, a Bharatanatyam recital on 30th January.
Rukmini Kalyanam is a 90-minute Bharatanatyam dance ballet about the love marriage of Lord Krishna with the daughter of King Bheeshmaka, Rukmini. The events leading to the marriage, like Rukmini's message to the Lord about her forceful marriage with the king of Chedi Sishupala, the kidnap drama of Rukmini, Krishna fighting the army of Rukmi and Sishupala, and ultimately the marriage ceremony in Dwaraka, will be depicted through the ballet.
Ganesan is a disciple of Guru V S Rama Murthy and Guru Manjula Ramaswamy. She has toured countries including USA, UAE, Norway, Spain, Portugal and Sri Lanka, and has performed to packed audiences. She is also a choreographer, having designed several solo and group ballets.
She obtained a master's degree in performing arts from the University of Hyderabad. Along with Jayaprada Ramamurthy, a renowned flautist, Ganesan runs an institution called Uttaraa Centre For Performing Arts in Hyderabad, where they impart flute and Bharatanatyam classes to their students.
Sri Rama Gana Sabha is one of the oldest cultural associations in the twin cities. It was established in 1949 by Carnatic singer Koniki Satyanarayana Rao. The association organises Sri Thyagaraja Aradhana Music Festival every year.
