    Emerging from the silence, a voice resonates: Death warns Sāvitri that the time of her dear husband Satyavān has come. Armed with compassion, wisdom, and the sheer power of love, Sāvitri engages Death in a battle to claim her husband. But can one woman outwit even Death?

    Based on an episode from the ancient Sanskrit epic, the Mahābhārata, this tale of human passion and spiritual devotion is given a stunning and evocative musical soundscape by the English composer Gustav Holst.
