We are pleased to announce the completion of our 90 minute stage adaptation
of Bahá'u'lláh's The Seven Valleys. Designed and tested for professional
presentation to the general public, it presents Bahá'u'lláh's mystical work
through music, drama, dance, singing, drumming, beautiful silk costumes,
sets and calligraphy. Performed by the Quinn family, it is a unique
integration of art and performance.
The Seven Valleys can be compared to other sacred or spiritually based
theatrical productions performed around the world. The tradition of
transferring sacred text, stories and spiritual themes to the stage has
been longstanding in many cultures.
In the United States this includes Broadway shows such as Godspell, Jesus
Christ Superstar, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Alec
McCowen's one man recitation of The Gospel of St. Mark and Peter Brook's
stage productions of the Mahabarata and The Conference of the Birds. In
Europe, the list includes the well-loved Bach chorales and Handel's
Messiah. In Asia, Noh Theatre, Gamelan and Indian performances of the
Mahabarata must be mentioned.
Audiences are enjoying The Seven Valleys immensely and are
purchasing the book afterward to learn more about Bahá'u'lláh and His
We have toured in the US, Canada, Europe and Taiwan with our first
show, The Magic Bird (CD available from US BDS). Recently, we were
featured on the American Bahá´í Newsreel and an article about our work
appeared in the American Bahá´í.
