Gita Govinda is a complete dance interpretation of the Sanskrit poem by the 12th-century poet Jayadeva. Revered as a masterpiece of lyrical and poetic content, it has held the imagination of generations with its rich imagery, its entrancing music, and its passionate depiction of the relationship of Radha and Lord Krishna.

Artistic director Menaka Thakkar, who was also a disciple of the late Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra, created a two-hour odissi dance solo version of Gita Govinda in 1978, which she performed for over 25 years. Thakkar and Ratikant Mohapatra, the son of Guru Mohapatra, partnered to develop an original choreography with music composed by Ashit Desai and Ratikant Mohapatra.
