This tour of the four quarters of Old Jerusalem, where Jews, Muslims, and Christians co-existed in relative harmony, includes Sabbath prayers, Sephardic ballads, Arabic love songs, and selections from Monteverdi's iconic Vespers of 1610 that echo the rapturous singing of Jewish cantors and the Muslim call to prayer. The troupe of 26 dynamic performers, including musicians of Jewish, Muslim, and Christian backgrounds, joins in a celebration of shared values.
