WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Thirty years after Peter Brook's groundbreaking adaptation of the Indian epic The Mahabharata, the director has created an intimate new interpretation and staging of this timeless tale in perhaps his finest work. A newly crowned king surveys a post-war battlefield—his army has won him the crown, but at what price? Written almost 2,500 years ago, The Mahabharata's magical story of finding tranquillity in the midst of war and destruction has striking connections to modern times, and has inspired some of Brook's most beautiful images and most transformative theatrical moments.
