SONG OF THE TURTLEDOVE
Freely based on the Biblical Song of Songs. A woman dreams of love and through the depths of her longing, love comes. Passion is celebrated culminating in a wedding ceremony that unites the lovers.
Weaving Sephardic, Flamenco, Jazz and Eastern European Hebraic traditions, the audience is slowly enveloped in an atmosphere both erotic and exotic. Atapestry that becomes an unending song of joy.
Song of The Turtledove was developed at the prestigious Eugene O’Neill Theater Festival and presented at Premieres Music-Theatre Festival at Lincoln Center in NYC.
