Libretto and Poems - I. Hentov
The Old Testament story of the great prophet Moses and the liberation of the Jewish people from Egyptian captivity.
Moses was born at a time when the pharaoh ordered the killing of all newborn boys of Jewish origin. To save him, the mother put the baby in a basket of reeds and sent down the Nile.
The child was found by the daughter of the pharaoh, who adopted him and raised him next to Ramses - the future pharaoh. Many years later, becoming a man, Moses flees from Egypt, and then returns there at the command of the Lord to rid his people of the shackles of slavery ...
The image of Moses - a key figure in the three world religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) - was widely reflected in painting, literature, music and theater. The musical comedy theater for the first time addresses the biblical theme and reveals the image of Moses (a person, a hero and a prophet) from the time of birth to the Exodus. The authors tried not to depart from the chronology of the events described in the Torah, but, given the peculiarity of the genre, they nevertheless added the lyrical line of love of the Jewish girl and the Egyptian warrior.
The colorful costumes and scenery, the play of leading theater artists, vibrant music performed by a symphony orchestra and a rock group will help the viewer plunge into the atmosphere of events that formed the basis of relations between religions and cultures.
The rock opera "Moses" celebrates the greatness of the titanic biblical figure - the guide of mankind!
