'Sukanya' is Ravi Shankar's only opera. He began writing it at the age of 90 and it was left incomplete at the time of his death in 2012. It was completed and orchestrated by David Murphy, a longtime collaborator of Shankar's, with the help of Shankar's wife Sukanya and daughter Anoushka. Inspired by Shankar's own wife and based on a tale from the Mahabharata, 'Sukanya' seamlessly blends Western and Indian musical traditions to tell an epic and magical love story which transcends time and space. Featuring the original cast of the opera, including Susanna Hurrell and Alok Kumar as Sukanya and Chyavana the elderly sage performing alongside masters of traditional Indian instruments and the BBC Singers.
