Queen Elizabeth II completed 60 years on the throne in February and on 13th May Raghu Dixit will be part of the celebration performing with a 70 piece orchestra and dancers from Nritarutya along with all of The Queen’s horses! An ecstatic Dixit said, “I am overwhelmed at the opportunity to perform for the Queen and the entire Royal Family at the Windsor castle. And with such an impressive line up of artists from around the world, I’m sure it will be a fantastic evening. We are putting together a music and dance extravaganza with dancers that is being choreographed by Mayuri Upadhya, from Nritarutya, one of India’s best dance companies, who will accompany me on stage along with all the queen’s horses! I still can’t imagine what that will look like!”

Dixit has a busy year ahead of him as he’s also part of an exciting new musical being produced by the British Council and Southbank Centre titled A Tale Retold. The musical is a rendition of an Indian folk tale and also includes members of British indie-folk group Bellowhead and UK-based Indian classical dancer, Gauri Sharma Tripathi. The musical narrative will involve song, dance and visual animation; it has been directed by acclaimed director Jude Kelly with theatre director Quasar Thakore-Padamsee as assistant director. A Tale Retold premieres in London at the Alchemy Festival this week and will come to India in January 2013.
