Music Director Tim White says it’s been a revelation to work with these artists to create this performance.

“Their music of passion and love is ravishingly beautiful, and it has swept all of the performers into a magical world of exoticism, magic, mystery and joy. We have all absolutely loved the creation and rehearsal process,” White said.

Defying Gravity: Karma fuses the spirituality of India’s music with the passion of Persia’s sound for in a stunning audio visual exploration to the edges of the Indian Ocean.
