Ramleela in Opera art form saw 100 artists from Italy and India, working hard to put the spotlight at the confluence of culture and ideas. Written by Yoga Guru Bijoylaxmi Hota, the story of Ramleela

 

in opera art form starts with Lord Rama’s marriage to Sita, followed by the banishment of the trio (Ram, Laxman and Sita) from Ayodhya and Sita’s abduction. The opera continues with Hanuman from Kishkindha visiting Lanka, clearing the path for Lord Rama to battle it out with Ravana. It finally ends with the famous trio returning to Ayodhya followed by celebrations.
