Summary
Shyama, Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore's classic 1939 dance musical, is known to many of the 230 million Bengali-speaking people around the world. Several of the songs it contains are popular favourites in their own right. Perhaps best described as a cross between opera and ballet, Shyama was Tagore's last major work for the stage. It reflects his artistic and philosophical reaction to both the turbulence of pre-Independence India and Hitler's persecution of Jews in Germany. The plot, which is based on a Buddhist legend, centres on Shyama, a court dancer who falls in love with a foreign merchant who is falsely imprisoned and faces execution ... unless Shyama accepts her admirer's offer to take the merchant's place
