John Gertz in association with Love Sick Development LLC and Park Theatre present the European Premiere of
A Song of Songs
From an unprecedented collaboration of international artists comes A Song of Songs, a critically acclaimed musical play, and winner of The San Francisco Critics Award for the best new production. A Song of Songs fuses a world music score, Middle Eastern harmonics, dazzling choreography and an inspiring story of passion and awakening. Drawing on influences that span continents and millennia - from ancient feminist eroticism to the sounds of modern European Flamenco, Klezmer and the Middle-East.
A Song of Songs tells the story of a young wife (Ofra Daniel) in a loveless marriage who discovers she has an unseen admirer. Intrigued, she enters into a mysterious and fervent love affair, finding herself on a dazzling journey of sexual and personal empowerment.
A Song of Songs creative team features a multicultural collection of award-winning artists including the prolific Israeli actress and composer Ofra Daniel (Behind Closed Doors, Edges, What if?, Kassit – The Musical – San Francisco) and composer Lior Ben-Hur (Sol Tevél).
This new production of A Song of Songs is a true multicultural theatrical event. The 2017 San Francisco premiere had audiences on their feet and was hailed as ‘extraordinary… lush… full of surprises… Highest Rating! This story seems ordained by gods!’ (San Francisco Chronicles).
