We have had a wonderful week of rehearsals, meetings and preparation for our initial showing of Highlights from Act 1 of Sukanya on the 14th July in the Linbury Theatre of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Things are coming together really well, and now we can give you a sneak preview of just how amazing Ravi Shankar’s vision is.
Here is a work in progress still from the animation that 59 Productions are creating:
Animation will be combined with vocal techniques that we believe have never before been heard in a Western Opera house:
Look out for the next update to hear how the wonderful voices of our Western-trained singers Susanna Hurrell and Amar Muchhala combine with these virtuoso Indian techniques!
We have 9 days left of our Kickstarter campaign. We are currently 46% of the way there, and to achieve our goal, need a real push now to keep the momentum going.
Thank you so much to everyone who has pledged. Please share this as much as possible and encourage your friends too. Hopefully these examples give you a glimpse of Ravi Shankar’s vision for this historic, ground breaking work. Together we are managing to realise it. Thank you!
