kick off alberta ballet’s 2019/20 season with a spectacular Bollywood musical, Taj Express, direct from Mumbai.
Taj Express follows the story of ones man’s passion and another man’s genius. Young composer Shankar struggles with his music, and it’s only when he begins to follow in the footsteps of his idol, A.R. Rahman that he discovers his path to success. The production reveals the secrets of the world's most prolific film industry, and the people behind the screen who make the magic in India's factory of dreams.
Taj Express rhythmically blends explosive dance with the hits of India’s most iconic composers and is brought to life by the stars of Bollywood cinema and its greatest musicians performing live on stage.
It is set to an unforgettable soundtrack featuring the songs of Oscar winner A.R. Rahman.
With a cast of multi-talented performers, Taj Express is an uplifting show full of colour, high-energy music and sensational dance scenes choreographed by one of Bollywood’s top young choreographers, Vaibhavi Merchant and directed by Shruti Merchant. As director of Taj Express, she aims to immerse the audiences in the heart of contemporary Bollywood in a way that’s never been seen before.
