Our Review 3 / 5

1659. Mughal India. The imperial court, a place of opulence and excess; music, drugs, euniches and harems. Two brothers, whose mother's death inspired the Taj Mahal, are heirs to this Muslim empire. Now they fight ferociously for succession. Dara was at the National Theatre in 2015.
