Farhang Performances Episode 10: NEGAR ESTAKHR & NARGORL RASHIDIAN

Famed Iranian puppetmaster Negar Estakhr is joined by her talented daughter Nargol Rashidian to present a children's story based on the Iranian BOOK OF KINGS "SHAHNAMEH" written by the great epic poet Abul-Qasem Ferdowsi in approximately 1010. This performance recounts the story of Zaul, the young prince who was born with white hair and abandoned by his father the king only to be raised by the mythical bird Simorg.  We thank Negar Estakhr & Nargol Rashidian for this great children's rendition and new addition to #FarhangPerformances.
