The Epic Post – Shakuntala


July, 1957 issue of the China Pictorial (Ren Min Hua Bao) shows a still of China’s National Youth Theatre’s performance of dramatist Kalidasa’s Shakuntala to commemorate the 5th anniversary of the founding of the China-India Friendship Association. Shakuntala is played by Bai Shan. 

Just a little more on Abhijnanasakuntalam, this time in a Chinese interpretation. This picture has Shakuntala in full dance costume perhaps because the scene is set in Dushyant’s court.
