”a postmodern, exotically ritualistic multimedia portrait of Moses" (NY times)

"a compellingly idiosyncratic meditation" (NY times)

The mythic tale of Moses, reimagined as a contemporary urban hallucination. 
All arts converge in this stunning original opera that traces the formation of a leader. Four female figures are brought to the forefront of the Biblical story: the women who nurtured and protected Moses from birth. Otherworldly costumes and saturated video projection surrounds the five vocalists, single actor and nine-piece orchestra, who realized the intensity and fervor of Gal's composition.  Allan Kozinn of the New York Times wrote “[a] compellingly idiosyncratic meditation on Moses."  And James Jorden of the New York Post raved "Gal's rhythmically intense and beautifully heartfelt music should reward open-minded listeners.”
