THE POWER OF COMPASSION
A rich tradition of sacred dance music and song

A 90-minute performance of masked dance and sacred chant from a Tibetan monastery, offering an entertaining and informative introduction to this unique culture.

The dramatic dances, taken from the Gutor Festival before Tibetan Losar (New Year) use colourful costumes and masks and the instruments include the long horns, drums, cymbals and bells of the Tibetan Tantric orchestra, interspersed with the atmospheric calm of traditional chanting of mantras and prayers from the monastery.

The performance includes introductory explanations of each item in the programme which allow audiences to get more understanding of the presentation.
