The evening will progress with a live performance of Carnatic classical music, played on traditional instruments such as gottuvadhyam, ghatam and droning tambura, followed by a Bharatanatyam dance performance. The shows will be accompanied by dinner and a variety of local wines and spirits. Scheduled 11 March 2020 in Chennai, India.
- The Heart and Soul of the South Pacific Dinner & Entertainment – The historic five-star Grand Pacific Hotel on the seafront in Suva, Fiji, will host this memorable night of show-stopping entertainment.

Move on to enjoy a delicious buffet dinner of local cuisine while watching warriors bring the past to life through movement and sound. Scheduled 7 May 2020 in Suva, Fiji.
