Anita in and as- a million Sitas a thematic Dance and concept based performance was very creative. Anita brought out the most outstanding female Characters like Ahalya, Manthara, Soorpanakha and Sita in her performance today. The idea is such a innovative thought. The Costume, Stage, Lights and Sound all well balanced. idea of Musicians directly facing the audience was such a welcoming idea.
The songs like Seetmamma Mayamma in Vasantha and Janaki Ramana all added more taste to the production.The stage was well done and good vocal support by Lakshmi and Subhiksha Rangarajan, Violin by Viji Krishnan and Priya Murli added strength to the concept.
The hall was full with and rasikas enjoying the cool evening.
