Taj Express

Peacock Theatre

Taj Express visits The Peacock from Film City, Mumbai after a smash hit, sell-out tour of America, transporting the kaleidoscopic colours of India into the heart of London’s West End.

Sadler’s Wells presents the UK premiere of Taj Express, visiting The Peacock from Film City, Mumbai after a smash hit, sell-out tour of America, transporting the kaleidoscopic colours of India into the heart of London’s West End.

Taj Express follows the story of ones man’s passion and another man’s genius. Young composer Shankar struggles with his music, and it’s only when he begins to follow in the footsteps of his idol, A.R. Rahman that he discovers his path to success. The production reveals the secrets of the world’s most prolific film industry, and the people behind the screen who make the magic in India’s factory of dreams.

Taj Express blends explosive dance with the hits of India’s most iconic composers and is brought to life by the stars of Bollywood cinema and its greatest musicians live on stage and includes an unforgettable soundtrack featuring the songs of Oscar winner A.R. Rahman, composer of Danny Boyle’s 2008 film Slumdog Millionaire. The production follows on from the success of The Merchants Of Bollywood and Wah! Wah! Girls.

With a cast of multi-talented performers, Taj Express is an uplifting show full of colour, high-energy music and sensational dance scenes choreographed by one of Bollywood’s top young choreographers, Vaibhavi Merchant and directed by her sister Shruti Merchant.
