GUWAHATI, Feb 6 � Darpan, a Guwahati-based organisation has received invitation to present the musical drama Chitrangada on stage at the 17th Bharat Rang Mahotsav, an international theatre festival being held in New Delhi from February 1 to 18.
A classic epic written by Kabiguru Rabindranath Tagore in 1892, its Assamese adaptation is by Madhurima Barua. Directed by Abinash Sarma, Chitrangada is scheduled to be staged on February 13 in the festival at Sriram Center, New Delhi.
The play showcased martial art forms, dance, music and poetry. Leading dance exponent Anjana Moyee Saikia portrayed the character Chitrangada.
