Ambassador Theater Presents
Under the Shadow of Wings
East and West – Two Plays of Mystery
150th Anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore’s Birth and 100th Anniversary of Maurice Maeterlinck’s Nobel Prize
Under the patronage of the Embassies of India and Belgium, The Ambassador Theater is delighted to present two mystery plays: Karna and Kunti by Rabindranath Tagore of India and Death of Tintagiles by Maurice Maeterlinck of Belgium. Karna and Kunti, an episode of the Mahabharata, the Sanskrit epic that forms the basis of Hindu belief in which Karna, commander of the Kaurav army, comes to wage war against the rival Pandava clan. Kunti is the Pandava matriarch, and, secretly, Karna’s mother. She attempts to bring him back into her care to avert his army from defeating her sons, but finds that the fate of the battle has been determined long before.
The Death of Tintagiles, a forgotten classic of Symbolist Drama, is about a young boy, Tintagiles, whose family has been almost entirely obliterated by an all-powerful Queen. Under mysterious circumstances, he returns to his sisters Ygraine and Bellangère, who try to protect him from the Queen and her devious servants, to no avail.
“… You never know exactly what the soul imagines it can see.” M. Maeterlinck
