Brimming with energy, dynamic choreography, stunning costumes and vibrant music, Choon Hyang is a heart-warming tale of love and resilience for children (above 10 years) and grown-ups. The play has a cast of 19 kids in the age group of 9 to 19. Tickets are available on www.bookmyshow.com now and at the RS box office from Oct 12th.

Oct 3-5: Smoking Weekend this!!! @ Opus
KINGFISHER ABANDONFRIDAY:9pm, 3rd Oct: TEMPO TANTRICK ... with Arfaaz Kagalwala & Priyanka BlahTempo Tantrick’s music, infuses elements of funk, electronica and break beat, while also trying to amalgamate the same with a hint of both members' cultural diversities. The principle that they work on is relatively simple – to make music that the listener can relate to, retain and recollect the music. There is no great philosophy or ideology behind the lyrics except that each song is based on something real and that description is what best represents the duo and their music.
