Thirumuttam, the new open air auditorium of Bharat Bhavan,  will host a spate of cultural events from today onwards.  A poetry evening to commemorate the centenary celebrations of Rabindranath Tagore’s ‘Geethanjali’ is the first programme scheduled to mark the beginning of an art fiesta. The event on February 25 will be lead by renowned singer V K Sasidharan.

On February 26 Wednesday there will be a piano concert by famous American pianist Dan Roth. The session organised in association with Indian Council for Cultural Relations will be inaugurated by Shashi Tharoor,  Minister of State for Human Resources Development. On March 10 there will be a kathak performance by artist Jayant Kastuar.

Thirumuttoam, which has a capacity of 400 plus, will be a novel experience for art lovers. The wide open air auditorium stands in the middle of trees and is fully equipped to stage art and cultural shows. A dormitory for the artists performing there is also nearing completion. Though the auditorium complete with greenrooms now hosts only programmes organised by Bharat Bhavan, it will be later made available to others for a reasonable rate, informed Bharat Bhavan secretary Satish Babu Payyannur. The auditorium was inaugurated by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on January 1.
