Multi-arts festival began this evening and there’s a lot for the asianculturevulture 😉 – see our live coverage!
IT WAS virtually legend Ravi Shankar’s last wish – that the East West opera he had started to write be completed, and tonight marked one part of that process.
The opera ‘Sukanya‘ ended its short national UK tour this evening as the annual South Asian multi-arts jamboree at the Southbank Centre – Alchemy – got under way – and the acv team covered the opening of the festival with live interviews.
Among them was Rachel Harris, the lead curator for much of the festival and the interview were done in the Royal Festival Hall where Alchemy is mostly hosted until Sunday, May 28.
We will be reviewing and mainly tweeting during the festival and covering a number of events.
Make sure you’re tuned to us, especially on Twitter as many things will come there direct from our team covering Alchemy.
So let the fun begin and don’t be shy about sharing what you love or don’t from Alchemy 2017…
