Information

Vaibhavi and Shruti Merchant, acclaimed choreographers of The Merchants of Bollywood present Taj Express, the spectacular new musical featuring the songs of Oscar® winner A.R Rahman, composer of Slumdog Millionaire.

For just one week this Autumn see this modern production, transporting the kaleidoscopic colours of India onto the Hippodrome’s stage direct from a sell-out London season.

Rhythmically blending explosive dance with the hits of India’s most iconic composers, Taj Express is brought to life by the stars of Bollywood cinema and its greatest musicians live on stage.

With fresh choreography and dazzling costumes, Taj Express is the story of young composer Shankar and his struggles with his music. It’s only when he begins to follow in the footsteps of his idol A.R. Rahman that he discovers his path to success in the world’s most prolific film industry.

Set to an unforgettable soundtrack, don’t miss this theatrical experience that will immerse you in the heart of contemporary Bollywood in a way that’s never been seen before.
