Shakuntala

Sivasakti Kalánanda Táncszínház

Indian Dance Drama

The most famous adaptation of the story of Shakuntala is by the Indian playwright Kalidasha, who lived in the 3rd and 4th centuries. This was the first Indian drama which reached Europe through various translations. The first English translation appeared in 1789, which was followed by many adaptations in various European languages, until finally the story found its way into ballet by becoming one of the inspirations for the ballet La Bayadére. The piece itself is the romantic drama of Dusjanta, the heroic king, and of Shakuntala, an innocent girl raised by hermits, full of true Indian twists. Unearthly joy and the deepest sorrow, finding and losing each other, farewell, exile, battle, freely passing between the worlds of the gods and men are all mandatory elements of a genuine Indian story.
