Acclaimed composer and singer Juwon Ogungbe’s new music-theatre piece brings to life the Ethiopian legend of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba.
Influenced by African musical genres and Opera, the legend of the first Emperor of the Solomonic Dynasty is told by two female Rastafari devotees, travelling in Ethiopia.
To coincide with Black History Month, King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba will be performed at Theatre Peckham by classical singers of diverse heritages and a youth chorus from Theatre Peckham in a semi-staged presentation. It will be followed by a Q&A session
