This video recording of Peter Brook’s stage epic is stunning both in its sweep and its theatrical simplicity. Taking an epic poem–the heart of the Hindu tradition, one chapter of which is the Bhagavad Gita–and dramatizing it in three two-hour segments, Brook and his astonishing company of international actors give a glimpse into the mythic power of theatre.
