About: Bliss

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, Zülfü 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.

Van Gölü, Türkiye. On beş yaşındaki tecavüz mağduru Meryem, ailesinin “namusunu” kirletmekle suçlanır. Kuzeni Cemal, töre cinayeti için görevlendirilir. Ancak, yolculukları, kendisine yeni bir hayat arayan professor İrfan ile çakışır.

Mutluluk’ta Zülfü Livaneli, gelenekle modernliği, Doğu’yla Batı’yı karşı karşıya getiriyor.

Bu yeni müzikal geleneksel formları otantik Türk çalgıları ile harmanlıyor. Avrupa turnesinden önce yalnızca 3 gece Londra’da.

Müzikleri besteleyen Cengiz Onural İncesaz ve Yeni Türkü gruplarının kurucularından. Bora Ebeoğlu, Oya Bora grubunun solisti.

Performed in Turkish with English surtitles.
