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 poetic writings.

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.
