A journey of escape towards the unknown in an opera featuring death and despair intertwined with a hope for a better future.
"The opening, not by the orchestra as commonly done, but by an unaccompanied women's nonet, was an ingenious idea, creating a dreamy emotional atmosphere right from the start" (Ury Epstein, THE JERUSALEM POST)
