The Wonder That Is India
February 9 – 10, 2013

The Sony Centre For The Performing Arts is pleased to welcome the return of BHARATI, a spectacular live presentation of the dance, music, fashion, and folk traditions of India. After an extended run at the Sony Centre during Diwali 2012, followed by an international tour, the critically acclaimed BHARATI returns February 9 – 10, 2013 at The Sony Centre For The Performing Arts for three performances only.

The cast of BHARATI is comprised of dancers, actors, singers, acrobats and musicians in a powerful tale of love and homecoming. BHARATI tells the story of Siddhartha, an Indian-born engineer raised in the United States who returns to his homeland to work on the Ganga Cleaning Project. Cynical and contemptuous of all things Indian, Siddhartha finds himself attracted to a mysterious Indian woman named Bharati. As she re-introduces him to the wonders of India, Siddhartha ends up discovering his true self, and the meaning of love.

BHARATI features original background music and 19 of the greatest hit songs of Indian cinema, all played and sung live. Each musical scene represents a regional Indian tradition and through the choice of rhythms, instruments, vocal arrangements, melodies, choreography, costumes, and video images a unique cultural portrait is created.

SONY CENTRE FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS, Toronto’s first performing arts centre, has played a defining role in the cultural life of Toronto for more than 50 years. Today, the newly renovated Sony Centre’s mission is to unite the global citizens of Toronto through great artistic experiences. In addition, the Sony Centre is dedicated to developing Toronto’s younger audiences through family programming; workshops targeted towards school-aged audiences, an under-30 membership program, and other community initiatives. www.sonycentre.ca
