The popular French-language musical 'Salt & Honey,' which tells the stories of Holocaust survivors and Israeli pioneers, will have its English-language debut in Jerusalem in honor of Israel's 60th anniversary. The newly translated version is heading off to European and North American stages following the Israeli premiere. The protagonists of this musical love story, Rebecca and Samuel, are based on 1,000 documented true stories of Holocaust survivors and Israeli pioneers. This story of tragedy and triumph includes an historical multimedia installation, musical performances and dance. Taking part in the Jerusalem performance are the 60-piece Ra'anana Symphonette Orchestra, dancer and choreographer Ido Tadmor, Dudu Fisher, singer Shirel (who is popular in France), French singer Jeanne Manson and authors Bernard Bitan and Laurent Bentata, among others. The show will be performed at the Hebrew University-Mount Scopus Amphitheater on June 26. Tickets are NIS 185 to 250 and can be bought at agencies throughout the country.
