Modern musical theatre (Lakhaon Promotey)
The Promotey theatre is a form of musical drama and is similar to Niyeay theatre (modern spoken theatre). The performance style is influenced by elements of the European theatre, particularly of French origin. Actors are exclusively female, except for the clown and hermit roles, which are played by men.
The Necklace or The Diamond Necklace (French: La Parure) is a short story by Guy de Maupassant:
A young girl from a poor family is an incredible beauty. Suffering from the difference between her beauty and her situation, she is interested in any material property: beauty products, clothes. She secretly wants to become rich. Her wish is fulfilled one day, but at what price?
