Mark Morris Dance Group and The Silk Road Ensemble: Layla and Majnun Description

Layla and Majnun is a classic love story which has been presented in many Middle Eastern and sub-continental cultures.

Layla and Qays are in love from childhood but are not allowed to unite. Qays (called Majnun, whichmeans 'possessed') is perceived to be mad in his obsession with Layla. Layla is married off to another and Majnun becomes a hermit, devoting himself to writing verses about his profound love of Layla. Although they attempt to meet, they die without ever realising a relationship.

 

Music: live. Musicians on stage.

 

This show contains surtitles (surtitling is minimal. Some songs translated from Azerbaijani.)
