Dhirana Academy of Classical Dance presents The Exiled King at Walton Arts Center at 7pm on Friday, April 30. The Exiled King is a dance production retelling the story of “The Ramayana,” a great Hindu epic written by Sage Valmiki in the fifth century B.C. that remains relevant even today. The story follows our hero, Rama, in an enchanted fight against evil. With the help of his loyal brother and an army of monkeys led by Hanuman, Rama embarks on a journey to rescue his wife Sita by defeating Ravana, the great king of Lanka.

Symbolizing the struggle between light and dark, good and evil, The Exiled King is a riveting performance that shows the importance of truth, loyalty and determination.

Support for the All-Stars project has been provided by the Walton Family Foundation and members of the NW Arkansas Jazz Society and Walton Arts Center.

Ghost Light Programming is presented by Procter & Gamble and provided in part by supporters of the Ghost Light Recovery Fund. The Ghost Light Recovery Fund helps Walton Arts Center offset lost revenue from canceled performances, continue education and intermission programming, maintain facilities and support staff until full-scale performances can resume.

The use of masks and social distancing will remain in place at Walton Arts Center performances through at least the end of May to protect our staff, patrons and performers as the vaccine rollout continues. For a complete list of health and safety protocols please visit
