'David and Bathsheba' Flamenco Drama
An original production based on the biblical story of David and Batsheva. A personal and artistic interpretation of one of the most complex and exciting passages in the Bible.
David and Batsheva – a story that has stirred and still preoccupies many creators throughout history. Folded within it is an unrestrained physical desire, a cynical use of the ability to send a faithful and brave soldier to his last battle even before he knew his wife and even the birth of King Solomon – the wisest of man!
... Did Batsheva devote herself to David of her own free will, or was his passion forced upon her? Did Uriah the Hittite know about the enormous love story woven behind his back during the war?..
An instinctive, dramatic, colorful and multi-participant production.
