One does not need to endure a 15-hour-plus plane ride to witness the sheer majesty of an authentic Tibetan monk performance. The Mystical Arts of Tibet: Sacred Music Sacred Dance, brings members of the Drepung Loseling Monastery, in all their full regalia, to our shores. Endorsed by the Dali Lama himself, this show re-creates the pageantry, splendor, costumes, and the monks’ famed multiphonic singing (in which the robed ones concurrently sing three notes of a chord while chanting) for one night. Performing ancient temple music with traditional Tibetan instruments and combining elements of ancestral Tibetan dance, this nine-act performance aims to enlighten audiences by encouraging world peace and healing. Additionally, this sacred show seeks to generate awareness of the Tibetan refugee community in India.
This enchanting evening takes place Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, located at 201 SW Fifth Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $49. Visit browardcenter.org, or call 800-745-3000.
