Abhisar - The Tryst

নির্জন পথে জ্যোৎস্না-আলোতে সন্ন্যাসী একা যাত্রী। এতদিন পরে এসেছে কি তাঁর আজি অভিসাররাত্রি ?

“The moonlit path’s deserted – the monk travels; alone is he After so long, is this finally - the night of destiny?”

These immortal lines are the cornerstone of Tagore’s evocative poem - অভিসার - ABHISAR (The Tryst), written in 1899 and based on a Buddhist story, published nearly 2000 years ago.

On the occasion of the 160th birth anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore, The Tagoreans UK are proud to bring to you Abhisar - The Tryst - a unique blend of Tagore’s poetry and songs, highlighting the strength of human connections, celebrating the spirit of hope and positivity, and focusing on the redemptive power of love and salvation – so relevant in the uncertain and distressing times of today, as we seek and offer compassion and solidarity through this beautiful and sensitive presentation.

We will be releasing this digital production over the Rabindra Jayanti weekend on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th May 2021. The details about how to watch are given below.

Abhisar will be brought to you in the Bengali verse that it was originally written in by the poet, supplemented by a selection of beautiful and evocative songs and poems by Tagore, culminating in a rich and innovative production – one that you would not have seen before. The entire presentation is accompanied by English translations and interspersed with English readings, in order to make it more accessible to non-Bengali speaking audiences globally.

We hope that you enjoy this digital composition - this labour of love - very thoughtfully and creatively compiled by The Tagoreans, as our team of regular performers come together from the comfort of their homes for this online celebration of Rabindra Jayanti.

This is a FREE event and can be accessed from anywhere across the globe. Please spread the word by sharing this with your friends and family across the world - and do remember to mark this in your diary to tune in, sit back and enjoy…as we bring to you Abhisar -The Tryst.
