The Opera of Tibet

There are a series of photos here of the Tibetan Opera in McLeod Ganj, in Himachal Pradash, in the Himalaya Mountains of India.

The slide show below has audio I recorded at the performances, so if you are only seeing the photos, then turn up the volume on your computer.

Dalai Lama and the Arts

The Dalai Lama attends these performances on occasion. Everything is done in the Tibetan language. So, for Westerners it is a visual performance with singing, the words of which are undeciperable.
