Sakuntala's Ring
The story of "Sakuntala's Ring" is based on Kalidasa's drama "Sakuntala", one of the most famous love stories in world literature. The illustrations were commissioned by the Bayerisches Staatsballett on the occasion of the revival of the ballet "La Bayadère" in May 2023. We asked seven illustrators to each illustrate one act of Kalidasa's "Sakuntala" in their signature style. Click through the acts, look at the pictures and listen to the sound design by Renu Hossain, who worked with a recording of "La Bayadère" from the Bavarian State Orchestra.
