Trinity – a Carnatic musical play in English
A Madras Players production
with Vidwan Vijay Siva, Vidushi Gayathri Venkataraghavan and Vidwan Dr. Sunder in the title roles.
TRINITY a Carnatic musical play in English premiered in November 2018 in Chennai to a thunderous reception from critics, theatre, and music lovers across all demographics.
TRINITY is based on 3 beautiful stories of Seetha Ravi on our legendary music composers, Thyagaraja, Dikshitar, and Shyama Sastri. Translated by Prabha Sridevan from Tamil, these stories are woven into one seamless fabric, dramatized, and directed by P.C.Ramakrishna. It is for the first-ever time in English theatre in India, that “Live” Carnatic music is featured, with prominent concert singers taking on the different roles. Vidwan Vijay Siva, Vidushi Gayathri Venkataraghavan and Vidwan Dr. Sunder lead the galaxy of singers and actors in the play.
TRINITY takes you to the 18th century and explores three relationships, Guru and his disciples, husband and wife, and father and daughter in varied emotions through music which is the centerpiece. The characters themselves sing, making the entire experience very different and unique to what our audiences have seen.
Duration: 120 minutes
