Mahabharata, The

One of the great masterpieces of world literature, The Mahabharata is a collection of ancient Sanskrit stories composed into the longest poem ever written. Its many fables are at the heart of countless beliefs, legends and teachings that are woven into the fabric of Indian culture. Translated, Mahabharata means "the great story of mankind".

Acclaimed theater director Peter Brook worked with award-winning writer Jean-Claude Carriere for eight years to create a stage epic based on The Mahabharata. He felt the tale about a struggle between two sides of a royal family permitted contemporary audiences a chance to take a voyage into a fascinating civilization in which they could see their own emotions, contradictions and dreams. The story is interwoven with many subplots, some comic, some tragic, but all gloriously entertaining.
