Darbar: Navatman's Royal Court

Performing arts thrived in the courts of various dynasties throughout India, and were often a reflection of the kingdom’s beauty and culture. Incredible artists were supported and offered patronage by the kings and queens of the court. Come partake in our version of this sentiment at our very first Darbar!
Performances, drinks, and hor d'oeuvres will be provided with ticket price.
