Broadway show to enchant Kathmandu
Sushila Arts Academy is striving to elevate the level of dance and performance levels never achieved in Nepal
Feb 19, 2016-Ruslan’s Amazing Adventure, Nepal’s first international musical broadway show, is set to enchant audiences this March. Spearheaded by Sushila Arts Academy (SAA) Dance Company, the musical will see 25 exclusive shows at the Russian Culture Center, Kamalpokhari.
The SAA Dance Company is an elite group of dancers who are undergoing an intensive programme of training in proper dance technique, pilates strengthening, and physical theatre. Under the guidance of Alize Biannic (Royal Ballet,UK), SAA is striving to elevate the level of dance and performance to international and professional levels never yet achieved in Nepal. Ruslan’s Amazing Adventure
will take audiences on a journey of visual and choreographic elegance with a wicked sense of humour—warm and charmingly whimsical at once. The musical charts the story of Ruslan, an orphan boy who leaves the mundane in search of discovering the world unknown. Along the way, he meets beautiful creatures and characters who usher him into a world of magic, fantasy and illusion; all portrayed through dancing, acting, and song. Accompanied with magical costumes and makeup, a revolving stage and enchanting lights and visual effects, the show is slated to be a feast for the senses.
Tickets for the show are available at Sushila Arts Academy, Maharajgunj or Vootoo Restaurant, Lazimpat. Sixteen of the 25 shows have already been sold-
