Lake Van, Eastern Turkey. Meryem, a fifteen-year-old rape victim, is accused of shaming her family. Cemal, her cousin, is tasked with an honour killing. But their journey takes an unexpected turn when they encounter Irfan, a troubled professor in search of a new life... In the award-winning Bliss, Zulfu Livaneli pits tradition against modernity, East against West, and weaves an extraordinary story along the dividing lines of modern-day Turkey. This brand new musical adaptation blends traditional forms with authentic Anatolian instruments. Arcola Artistic Director Mehmet Ergen directs the world premiere production, playing in London for 3 nights only prior to a European tour.
