Uday Shankar and his Hindu Ballet

Flyer for “Uday Shankar and his Hindu Ballet,” presented at the San Francisco Opera House on February 5, 1950 (though the original date, crossed out with a pen, reads January 24). The flyer promises “hypnotic dances,” “exotic music,” and an “original theatrical experience.” Shankar was a pioneer in the field of dance and created a unique fusion between classical Indian dance and European ballet, which was likely on display at this event.
