It was a little disconcerting that the doors didn't open up until about 5 minutes before the show, but everyone got time to find their seats and take in the ambiance without feeling rushed. Ushers were excellent.

Ate at the KC Cafe on the Terrace Level. Reasonable prices, great food, and no waiting. Ideal for having a civilized meal before the show.

Description

Ravi Shankar, sitar

Anoushka Shankar, sitar

A living legend, Ravi Shankar is known as “the godfather of world music.” Credited with introducing Western audiences to India’s intricate classical music, Shankar shares the stage with his daughter Anoushka, who is “the purest of her father’s disciples, musically formed entirely in his image” (The New York Times). The father-daughter duo has “a bond that comes up only onstage,” Ms. Shankar has said. “It’s spiritual…and it’s the beautiful music and the excitement.”
