Rahmanian stages ‘Folklore Songs’

Tehran, July 28, IRNA - Noted Iranian stage director Mohammad Rahmanian said his latest play ‘Folklore Songs’, which is being staged, is a blend of music and drama.

Speaking at a press conference, Rahmanian added that the story is about an Iranian composer who lives in New York and returns to Iran after 20 years to prepare and present his PhD dissertation.

“We have used the score from nine old Persian movies in this play. They include: ‘Badook’, ‘An Unfinished Story’, ‘Nakhoda Khorshid’ (Captain Khorshid), ‘Dash Akol’, ‘Stone Lion’, ‘Cow’ and ‘Autobus’,” he said.

Rahmanian expressed hope that his work will be very well-received by the audience.

Commenting on the role of Fereydoun Khalatbari in the play, Rahmanian said, “I used his expertise in Iranian folklore music.”

“The story is told from the main character’s view. It begins with simple melodies,” he noted.
