"Devdas" the famous novella by Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay, is regarded as one of the most famous love sagas in Indian Literature. Translated into almost every major language, this novella has seen its glory in Indian cinema. Now AGP World brings the classic on stage in grandeur.

Set in Calcutta in the 1900s, this musical extravaganza, aims to recreate the period and the setting of the novella in all its opulenlence.

The sets have been designed by the National Award-winning art and cinematic director Omung Kumar of films such as Mary Kom, Bhoomi, Sarbjith and Saawariya.

The highlight of this production are the classic and contemporary fusion dance performances choreographed by Shampa Sonthalia (daughter of acclaimed Kathak maestro Padmashri Gopi Krishna) and Bertwin Ravi D'Souza which gives life to the musical score of Devdas.

The play has original melodies expressing undying, unrequited love sung by some of the most prominent singers like Shail Hada, Bhoomi Trivedi, Shaan, Alka Yagnik, Suresh Wadkar and Antara Mitra.

Bringing this musical extravaganza to life is Ashvin Gidwani & AGP World.

Speaking about the play, Ashvin Gidwani, Producer & MD, AGP World expresses, "I am thoroughly excited to bring this classic on stage. Devdas has witnessed several adaptations in the Indian cinema, yet there is something about the epic that connects with the audience."

Talking about the adaption, Saif Hyder Hasan, Director says, "Devdas is the mother of all love stories. It is the apex of unfulfilled yet eternal love. Now on stage for the first time in all its splendour it will move the audience by its spectacle and creativity."
