Shai Baitel conceived Damascus Square and co-wrote the book, lyrics and music with Oran Eldor and Sarah Hirsch. The musical, according to press notes, is inspired by the story of "Eli Cohen, the famous Israeli spy who worked for the Mossad in Syria in the 1950s and 1960s. It asks to whom we owe our loyalty – our country, our family, or ourselves?"
The upcoming concert will feature videos by video art director Guy Romem.
The Old Vic Tunnels in London will stage the premiere of Damascus Square during its autumn 2012 calendar. The Old Vic Tunnels is the sister theatre company to The Old Vic Theatre, whose artistic director is Kevin Spacey.
