Sat January 14 - Sun January 15, 2023 @ 7:00pm | 1H
Adishakti Amphitheater


A Therukoothu play staged by Indianostrum at our amphitheater.

On the 13th day of the war, in response to a humiliation inflicted by Abhimanyu on his son, Duryodhana asks Drona, the master of arms of all the protagonists, to capture Dharma, the eldest of the Pandavas. Drona decides to attack Dharma with a circle formation. Arjuna is the only one capable of breaking it but, in his absence, no one seems able to stop Drona. Abhimanyu claims to know the secret of his father, Arjuna, and insists on throwing himself into battle. Dharma reluctantly decides to send Abhimanyu to confront the fearsome master Drona. Abhimanyu penetrates the circle and begins to slaughter his opponents. But, surrounded by the Kauravas, unaware of the secret to getting out, powerless in the face of Saindhavan, Duryodhana’s brother-in-law, he is condemned to fight heroically until his death.
