I bow to the wheel of six seasons
Cycles of birth and death
Each season bestows gifts
Enchanting our hearts
Bringing abundance to our earth

Kala Vandanam is pleased to present Ritu – The Seasons in beautiful Mears Park in downtown St. Paul. Join us and experience this original production in an atypical setting – we’ll explore it together!

Inspired by Kalidasa’s 4th century Sanskrit work Ritu Samhara and Vivaldi’s 18th century Italian work Le Quattro Stagioni, Kala Vandanam’s Ritu – The Seasons brings out the beauty of each season through an original Bharatanatyam work.
