European premiere of A Song of Songs to open at Park Theatre in 2024
A Song of Songs is to make its European Premiere at London’s Park Theatre in 2024.
In a remarkable convergence of global talents, A Song of Songs will run at the venue from 9 May – 15 June as part of its newly announced season.
A Song of Songs isn’t just a play; it’s an electrifying symphony of world music, Middle Eastern rhythms, captivating choreography, and a narrative filled with fervour and revelation. It seamlessly interweaves diverse cultural influences, from ancient erotic feminism to the contemporary beats of European Flamenco, Klezmer, and the Middle East.
At the heart of the narrative is a poignant tale of a young wife, portrayed by Ofra Daniel, trapped in an unloving marriage. Her life takes a turn when she learns of a secret admirer. As she delves into a passionate affair, she finds herself on a transformative journey, oscillating between empowerment and a possible descent into passionate insanity.
Ofra Daniel said: “I want to bring a different musical theatrical experience to audiences, with my first UK production. Poetry is the highest form of expression. It evokes imagery that stirs the senses, opens the mind, and awakens the body.”
Twelve performers and musicians bring the production to the stage. Actress, writer and composer Ofra Daniel is joined by Tony Award nominee Christopher Renshaw, (We Will Rock You and The King and I). The score is penned by Ofra Daniel and Lior Ben-Hur, with collaborative inputs from Ali Paris. Producer for A Song of Songs is John Gertz (Zorro: The Musical) and General Manager is Aria Entertainment’s Katy Lipson (The Addams Family).
Additional cast and production details will be announced in due course.
