Geffen Playhouse | Director: Giovanna Sardelli

Though Guards at the Taj is set in 1648 India, the characters speak in modern American English, including accents, slang, and swearing. One of the challenges with the design and score was to find music that felt ancient and modern at the same time. I used digital drums, synthesizer, and traditional pan-Asian instruments to combine the two ideas into the world of the play.
