Recreating Arabian fables on stageYesterday (04.08.18) in Bangalore, at Chowdiah Memorial Hall, I had an opportunity of viewing a stage drama 'The Stories of Scheherazade' presented by the Bangalore School of Speech and Drama.
It was the story of Arabian nights presented through a large number of participating students. The age of these child artists was ranging from 7 to 17 years but the performance put forth by them was scintillating and magificient considering their tender age.
The sets on stage, lights and costumes were well researched and appropriate to the theme of the play and had a deep impact on the audience.
The Director, Dr Zulfia Shaikh an experienced stage director has shown her excellent skills in creating a real life scene of those ancient fables in front of the audience in the most spectacular and successful manner. The applause from the audience at the end of the play is a testimony to her efforts.
I was so much impressed by this high class stage presentation that I thought it pertinent to share this with our fellow members in this forum.
