The new musical drama SOVIET ZION tells the story of an American family and a Ukrainian family who in 1939 both move to Siberia participating in a movement to create there a Yiddish utopia. The reality they face is not what they had been led to believe, and great personal sacrifice will have to be made in order for them to achieve the freedom they seek. Set against a grand historical backdrop, the story of these characters' intertwining lives explores questions of identity, integrity, and faith; and indeed what happened to this alternative homeland.

The debut presentation of this new musical by Giles Howe and Katy Lipson with Roberto Trippini features a large cast of exceptional singers, and virtuosic live accompaniment by Musical Director Joseph Finlay and Assistant Musical Director Colm O'Regan. Directed by Bronagh Lagan, this strictly limited run is your exclusive chance to see this exciting new Musical Drama.
