About My Musical Directions

Musicals

Being primararly a musician, I have a special place in my heart for musicals and ballets. I directed my first musical, Rabindranath Tagore’s Shyama in the late 1960s (most likely in 1968).  It was, what we called a “Geeti Natya” (not a dance drama!) The effort was a mild success.  Though I was very young, the experience taught me a lot! I understood the difference between a solo performance and bringing a team of artists, most of them senior to me, toghether for a perfomance. It also made me think about the technical side of a production. Most importantly, it taught me eto think about the audience and their expectations.
