Brief Synopsis

Having long been the black sheep of the family, David decides to attain celebrity – to be loved by one and all. But the desire to be accepted and loved turns into a desire for power – and the only one who can stop him is… himself.

It’s a story of heroism, jealousy, power, passion, and love.

Press

He [Eyal Bitton] has… the poetic and musical power of a King David.

Heather SolomonThe Canadian Jewish News

This man has done as much for the Montreal arts scene as any genius… Bitton is so darned talented, it’s a shame to miss his work.

Bram EisenthalThe Chronicle (West End Edition)

English translation

Eyal Bitton stunned the audience… Here, then, is the result of a young Sephardi’s talent – a production that is extraordinary as much by the difficult subject matter as by the depth of the piece. Bravo Eyal!


Original French

Eyal Bitton a étonné un public… Voici donc issu du talent d’un jeune sépharade une production qui sort de l’ordinaire autant par le choix difficile du sujet que par la densité de la représentation. Bravo Eyal!
