The Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre, which Nita Ambani created and is the chair of, aims to preserve and advance Indian arts.
Its goal was to establish a venue for international and Indian populations to interact, share talents, and gain insight into one another’s cultures.
The center will bring the internationally renowned musical Mamma Mia! to India in November, carrying on the tradition of bringing international productions and talents to the Indian stage.
The musical, which was created by British playwright Catherine Johnson, is based on songs performed by the Swedish group ABBA.
The musical’s title is derived from the band’s 1975 number-one single “Mamma Mia.”
The venue had several standout performances in September. Among them was a special performance by the award-winning tabla master Pandit Nayan Ghosh and his group.
They explored the rhythmic rhythms of Iran and North India, showcasing the cultural contrasts between the two nations.
Famous Indian classical dancer Chitra Dalvi also gave a performance at the venue, with choreography created by Sandhya Purecha, a longtime practitioner of Bharatanatyam.
