An Epic Stage Show

Like the story it showcased, "Ramayan, The Epic" was a undertaking of a scale unseen in Atlanta before.

Ramayan, The Epic was staged in Atlanta on October 17, by IACA. Though it was a locally produced show the splendor and magnitude rivaled a Broadway show. It took two years of preparation and one year of execution to make it a reality and may well be the most expensive Hindi show in the U.S.

The show was intended to offer a peek in the Indian culture to the children of Indian-Americans. For the first ever time for a live performance, the audience were treated to English subtitles synchronized in real-time with the lines being spoken.

This show presented many innovative and new ideas in staging such a performance. For the first time, one stage was split and managed as three, enabling rapid stage movement. Many special effects included highly acclaimed subtitles in English, 84 audio-, 30 video- and props-based effects inclusive of Agnipravesh by Sita, and Maha Yudh.

"Ramayan, The Epic" was produced and directed by Syam Sundar Yellamraju. His comments on the production are, "Of all the dramas that I have done, Ramayan was the biggest challenge of my life."
