The Emperors Place in Gauteng and Playhouse Opera Theatre in Durban will be the South African venues of the upcoming shows of Mystic India, a festive Bollywood music and spectacular dance, on 7-26 May and 28 May to 9 June 2013, respectively, the tour organisers announced this week.
Mumbai-based Bollywood is the largest and most sensational film-producing industry in the world. Now the highly entertaining show is promising glitz and glory and a veritable feast of song and dance during their South African tour.
Created on the concept of ancient India’s transition into modern India, the show features some 28 talented artists, including mind-boggling specialty acts and dancers who have performed with Bollywood’s most prominent actors, plus some 750 opulent costume changes, set against stunning lighting and visual effects.
“The audiences will get it all,” Amit Shah, the show director and choreographer said. “For audiences who think they have experienced Bollywood must think again because Mystic India will blow you all the way to the small villages of India to the fast-paced streets of Mumbai and New York.”
The show is produced by US-based AATMA Performing Arts, of which Shah is the founder and creative director.
