    Darvag presents the Iranian master playwright Bahram Beyzaie's Death of Yazdgerd, a poetic and political work exploring the
    cruel and tragic dynamics of a class-based society. The text is translated by Manuchehr Anvar, and will be directed by Evren
    Odcikin: War is raging. King Yazdgerd's body is discovered in a run-down mill in the Iranian desert. Charged with murder, the
    miller, his wife and his sickly daughter must tell their story to the commanders to escape torture and death. Who killed the
    King? Was Yazdgerd indeed the revered God-King, or a puny, immoral man caught in the destructive whirlwind of his times? Echoes
    of Greek tragedy haunt this drama of a family exposing its dark secrets in a time of war and poverty, weaving a web of mystery
    tied to the fate of a nation under attack facing an unknown future.

    Ghazal and Mozart's Requiem

    New York Friday - August 27, 2004     08:00 PM

    Ghazal and Mozart’sRequiem

    On August 27, the Mostly Mozart Festival examines the unexpected connection between
    world music and the majestic requiem, one of Mozart’s final scores. The concert
    opens with the ensemble Ghazal, featuring Kayhan Kalhor on kamancheh, Shujaat Husain
    Khan on sitar and vocals, and Sandeep Das on tabla, performing meditative Indian and
    Persian improvisations. Then the focus turns to the Requiem with distinguished
    soloists performing with the Riverside Choral Society. The juxtaposition is
    surprising and beautiful.

    Pre-concert discussion with Louis Langree, Kayhan Kalhor, Shujaat Husain Khan and
    Sandeep Das in Avery Fisher Hall at 7:00
