Musical event on Sri Sri tomorrow

Staff Reporter

VISAKHAPATNAM: A musical programme ‘Mahakavi Sri Sri' will be performed by KRKM Academy of Fine Arts at Swarnabharati Indoor Stadium on Sunday evening, according to Municipal Commissioner V.N. Vishnu.

Noted Kuchipudi exponent Koka Vijayalakshmi will direct the ballet and music is by D.S.V. Sastry. Former chairman of Official Language Commission and honorary chairman of the academy A.B.K. Prasad will make introductory speech and elaborate on the concept.

Epochal poet Srirangam Srinivasa Rao (Sri Sri) was a champion of the common man and the downtrodden and his poems captured their travails, be it a farmer, labourer, or anyone from the toiling masses.

With his magnum opus Mahaprasthanam and other works Siprali and Khadhasrusthi, he proved himself a master of poetic diction. He was a multifaceted genius: poet, writer, lyricist, progressive thinker. The ballet is woven around a few of his poems from Mahaprasthanam , Khadgasrushti and Siprali. The dance sequences are choreographed in Kuchipudi, folk and contemporary styles, and the musical programme includes a few drama sequences.

The 90-minute programme also comprises digital presentation on the poet with commentary. A total of 30 artistes will participate in the programme and 12 dance sequences form part of it.
