The Legacy of the Thespian Past: Theatre at the Royal Opera House

Nov 25 | 06:00 PM (IST)

Event Information

Mumbai’s cultural landscape has always been the playground where great production houses develop theatre in Marathi, Gujarati, English, Hindi and other languages of this multilingual metropolis. The Royal Opera House, Mumbai, inaugurated in 1916, became the pulsating centre that launched several history-making plays and the careers of their actors.

Against a backdrop where vintage grace played tug of war with puritanical attitudes, glittering careers – including those of Zohra Sehgal and Prithviraj Kapoor – took flight and became an integral part of the vibrant theatre world in Mumbai and beyond.

Join our panel as they bring to life stories of this iconic stage. They will discuss the significance of theatre to the social fabric of the time; how its history is intricately linked both with the establishment of classy kothas as with the the city’s cultural milieu; and why the submerged histories of places such as The Royal Opera House, Mumbai are relevant to our contemporary experience of theatre.
