The Dabiri Foundation has sponsored a DVD production of a play of the legendary ancient tales of Rostam and Sohrab.

The Foundation embarked on this journey to honor the millennium of the birth of Ferdowsi, the author of the Rostam-Sohrab tale, which stands among his magnificent book of poems, the Shahnameh. Ferdowsi is regarded as the father of the modern Persian language, or new Persian or Parsiye Now. The Dabiri-sponosred play has also been enriched with the poems of the modern Persian poets Kasraee and Beizaee. This is indeed a timely production that reflects the complex culture that has become an integral part of Iranians as a whole.
