The award-winning classic Indian play Mughal-e-Azam is making its way to Dubai Opera. Adopted by acclaimed playwright and director Feroz Abbas Khan, known for work like Mahatma vs Ghanti and Dinner with Friends, the classic theatrical production pays tribute to the iconic 1960’s eponymous film directed by K. Asif.
The musical follows the dramatic and passionate story of Prince Salim, the sole and spoiled heir to the Mughal throne, and Anarkali, a beautiful court dancer. The couple falls deeply in love despite all odds and discretion and is forced to face the wrath of Emperor Akbar, Salim’s father. The play is a dance between romance and tragedy, sacrifice and duty.
Khan’s Mughal-e-Azam is an extravagant display of Bollywood glamour and classic grandeur. With over 300 cast and crew members, costumes by celebrity designer Manish Malhotra, and lavish set displays, the live-singing stage production is guaranteed to take spectators on an emotional roller coaster.
