about "trinity"

TRINITY  is based on the sensitive stories of Seetha Ravi on Carnatic music’s legendary composers, Saint Thyagaraja, Muthuswami Dikshitar and Shyama Sastri, translated by Prabha Sridevan. By a wonderful coincidence, not only were all three were born in the temple town of Tiruvarur in the mid-18th Century, but lived AT THE SAME TIME in and around Thanjavur, giving magnificent compositions to the world.

It is for the first ever time that “Live” Carnatic music is being amalgamated into an English theatre production in India. The characters themselves sing, making the entire presentation very different to what our audiences have seen. And what is more…..celebrated musicians are coming together to play the main roles.

WHAT MAKES “TRINITY” UNIQUE

It is for the first ever time that “Live” Carnatic music is being amalgamated into an English theatre production in India. The characters themselves sing, making the entire presentation very different to what our audiences have seen. And what is more…..celebrated musicians are coming together to play the main roles.

Main Roles & Characters

Vijay Siva is role as "Muthuswami Dikshitar "

"Gayathri Venkataraghavan" role as Lalitha.

"Shyama" role as Sashtri's Wife.

They are joined by a galaxy of well known concert performers ……. Palghat Dr. R. Ramprasad, Vikram Raghavan , Bharat Narayan, Abhinav Shankar and Mathangi Kailasanath.

The 3 short stories, each depicting an event, a movement, a moment in the lives of these great composers are drawn with rare sensitivity by Seetha Ravi from fact, embellished by imagination.

Seetha Ravi herself is a torchbearer of a very rich tradition. The granddaughter of the great “Kalki” Krishnamurthi, she is a noted author and scholar. Her short stories have been published and praised.

Prabha Sridevan is no stranger to The Madras Players. Her translation of ‘Chudamani” has been performed by us with phenomenal success in Chennai and elsewhere. Prabha’s translation of “Trinity” is free flowing and faithful to the original Tamil and captures the “feel” of the 18th century artistic sensibilities of Thanjavur.

P.C.Ramakrishna, who has dramatized and directed “TRINITY’, straddles two worlds…..of music and theatre. A trained Carnatic percussionist; he integrates his experience in both disciplines in bringing to the stage this bi-dimensional work of art, weaving the 3 stories into a seamless fabric
