Saberi to narrate Sa’di story in modern play

Tehran, July 27, IRNA - Iranian theater director Pari Saberi said that her latest musical ‘Delgosha Garden’ is a modern play inspired by the life of the Persian poet Sa’di Shirazi, one of the major Persian poets of the medieval era.

Saberi, who was attending a press conference at Vahdat Hall along with actor Alireza Shoja’ Nouri, who will play the role of Sa’di.

“I do not make a documentary, it is a modern work. I will make use of all facilities,” 'Iran Daily', published Sunday, quoted Saberi as saying recently.

“I will not talk too much. For, Sa’di has a great personality. I feel that the poet has conquered frontiers and is not limited to a certain geographical place.”

The director said it took her two years to write the text of the play. “I sought the views of several domestic and foreign researchers because the thoughts of Sa’di are internationally-known.”

Saberi, who will stage the play from July 31, said, ‘Sa’di has such a personality that I have always wanted to portray in my plays. He lived in a chaotic world, and I liked to feature all such issues on stage.”

“I owe my art life to Persian culture and literature.”

“It is a great honor for Iranian people to see that lines from Sa’di poems are written at the entrance to the United Nations Headquarters in New York,” she once said.

Saberi is the winner of the French Literature and Art Cavalier Badge that was presented to her by French President Jacques Chirac.

She studied at Vaugirard Cinematography College which is one of the famous cinematographic higher education institutes of France.
