Highlights from our Inaugural Performing Arts Season



From October 14 to October 16, the Aga Khan Museum presented its second year of flamenco programming — this year complementing the special exhibition “Álvaro Siza: Gateway to the Alhambra.” Enjoy these select highlights from each performance in the festival, featuring such artists as Sara Jiménez Andrés, Cristian Pérez, Alfredo Tejada, and Patrocinio Hijo.

On Saturday, March 12, 2016, we welcomed a stellar line-up of artists — including Ostad Saeed Farajpoori, Fariba Davodi, Bamdad Fotouhi, and Ehsan Ghafari — to our auditorium during the Great Poets Series. Enjoy these select highlights from the event, animated by the mystical whirling dance of Farzad AttarJafari, featuring translations by Sheniz Janmohamed.
