A 3,000 Year Old Opera Comes to Life After years of study of music, the Bible and the Hebrew language, artist, translator and musician Aryeh Naftaly has arrived at some startling discoveries: The Song of Songs is a 3,000-year-old autobiographical tragicomic opera in which King Solomon confesses how he threw away true love and with it his chance to bring about the Messianic Era. Furthermore, Naftaly has discovered the key to performing this 3,000-year-old masterpiece as written based on the ancient system of Biblical trope Ta'amei HaMiqra.The Song of Songs Words and Music: King Solomon is a recording of the original text and music of The Song of Songs performed by an ensemble of twelve of Israel's finest singers and musicians accompanied by a 24 x 24 cm art-book featuring an explanation, innovative parallel Hebrew-English translation, and dramatic arrangement of the text with 60 original papercut illuminations by Aryeh Naftaly.
