Dictionary of Music, Dance and Drama

 
Biswajit Sinha (Author) Encyclopaedia of indian Theatre
Synopsis

A commendable initiative on the part of the writer to bring out a Performing Arts Lexicography dealing with Ancient Indian Music, Dance and Drama from the huge corpus of traditional Sanskrit treatises from Sangitashastras, Natyashastras, Rasashastras to Abhinayadarpanam, a manual on Indian dance. Within the space constraint of a single volume, numerous terms from the three genres are brought together such as Atodya, Svara, Tala, Sangita, Gita, Rasa, Bhava, Abhinaya, Purvaranga, Hasta Mudras, Rangapeetha, Ranga and so on. A classic reference guide to approximately 3000 words, simply presented in A-Z listing in alpha-betical order with sufficient cross-references, is now available for the first time for those who have been searching for a handy but an exhaustive and authoritative dictionary on the subject fields. Highly recommended for the Libraries, Schools, Academies on Music, Dance, Drama, Ancient Literature; Indological Institutions; and also Organisations of Sanskrit Research.
