An Indian Summer in the Pearse Museum
Start Date: 12 May 2013
End Date: 12 May 2013
Times: 3 - 5pm
This year is the centenary of a theatrical double bill performed in the Abbey Theatre in aid of Scoil Éanna on the 17th May 1913. The programme consisted of a performance of Patrick Pearse's play "An Rí" and Rabindranath Tagore's play "The Post Office". This double bill was later repeated in Bengal in India where Tagore had founded a school, referred to in the Irish press at the time as "The Indian St. Enda's".
To mark this very significant anniversary, the Pearse Museum will be hosting a number of Indian-themed events this year under the heading 'An Indian Summer in the Pearse Museum'.
The first event is a concert of Indian classical music entitled 'Young Masters of Tradition' and will feature Saugato Roy Choudhury on the sarod with Debojyoti Sanyal on the tabla. It takes place on Sunday 12th May between 3 and 5pm.
Tickets are €10 and can be booked on (01) 493 4208 / (086) 055 4858.
This event is being organised in partnership with the Indian Classical Music Society.
