“Phoolan Devi’s life is a contemporary story with the resonant quality of an ancient myth. Shirish is the ideal composer to realize it as a transcendent work of art. He has the dramatic instinct of a true opera composer and the gift of rendering vocal lines that soar freely as they engrave themselves in the minds and hearts of audiences.” – Osvaldo Golijov
