REVIEW FOR SRI KRISHNA RAYABARAM - A MYTHOLOGICAL PLAY
Finding it hard to get your kids interested in the Mahabharata in these days of a gazillion channels, gadgets and websites competing for their attention? We have no smart ideas, but you can do worse than tagging them along to a huge outdoor location with plenty of other folks, where even if they can't appreciate the nuances of the lines on stage, they might not consider all lost.
The famous Sri Krishna Rayabaram episode in the Mahabharata happens live at the NTR Stadium, on 3rd July, 6:30pm. One of the most significant parts in the Mahabharata, the Rayabaram episode has Lord Krishna don the role of a dove and deliver a peace message to the Kauravas on behalf of the Pandavas, as a last attempt to avoid war. The outcome may not have been the high-point of the Lord's résumé, but it surely makes for extremely good drama with an entire courtroom getting to see His viswarupa.
The play is divided into two parts - one where Krishna preaches to Arjuna, and one where He is in the Kuru durbar with his proposal for peace. Natakulam Shivaji is the producer of the drama, the role of Krishna is played by T. Nagi Reddy, a renowned theatre artist, and Samikya Bharathi Satyanarayana plays Duryodhana. The drama is a tribute to the late S V Ranga Rao, the veteran actor, on his birth anniversary.
The entry is free. Please contact Satyanarayana at 98856-73828 for further details.
