About the Show
This sweeping musical tells the dramatic story of one of the greatest heroes in the Bible, King David. This engaging musical by Eyal Bitton wowed audiences at Montreal’s Monument-National Theatre, Saidye Bronfman Centre, Oscar Peterson Concert Hall, and at Toronto’s beautiful Winter Garden Theatre.
Music and libretto by Eyal Bitton.
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.
He [Eyal Bitton] has… the poetic and musical power of a King David.
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.
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!
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!
