Esplanade Presents | Kalaa Utsavam – Indian Festival of Arts
Garuda – King of Birds
Advisory: Recommended for children ages 4–8 years.
Look at the sky! It’s a bird, it’s a plane, no it’s…Garuda! With wings so wide they could cover the sky, and feathers so strong they could change the weather, you would never see a bird quite as fantastic. Come join Garuda on his adventures, told through music, story and dance, as he sets out to the heavens to find the magic nectar and save his mother from the evil curse of his cousins, the serpents.

Starring Norhaizad Adam* as Garuda and Sangeetha Dorai as the mysterious narrator.

*Due to unforeseen circumstances, Norhaizad Adam replaces Soti Rampati Dwivid in the role of Garuda.
