Devdas - The Musical
Over last weekend my youngest son (9) and I were very lucky to experience Devdas. A musical based on a story portrayed in Bollywood for over the last 50 years. Set in India in the early 1900s the story tells of love lost between three people and is brought to life with an ensemble of 15 instrumentalists, percussionists and vocalists and 50 dancers.
The ensemble were fantastic and the dancers and their extravagant costumes were a highlight. Even through the production runs for two hours with an interval, the children in the audience were not restless, although there were moments where we felt a bit lost in what was happening within the story.
This is a wonderful production to let your children experience a different culture and a traditional story.
