Tagore's Sacrifice Challenges Religious Zealotry
Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore's great play Sacrifice depicts the struggle of secular humanity against the might of fanatical religious fervor. The king of Tripura, moved by the plight of a poor girl whose goat is killed, forbids blood sacrifices to Goddess Kali. Most people are outraged, including the Queen, who had "promised" the sacrifice of hundreds of animals at the temple so the Goddess would grant her a child. Meanwhile, the Chief Priest of the temple is furious and willing to do anything, including conspiring to kill the king, to restore the bloody tradition. In addition to dramatic scenes, this production at Los Angeles' Broadwater Theater will include traditional music and dances.
