Our Partner's Work: Ziryab, the Songbird of Andalusia

A World Premiere from Silk Road Rising

Written by Ronnie Malley
Directed by Anna C. Bahow

We are so proud of our friends at Silk Road Rising, as well as Associate Artistic Director of IVP, Ronnie Malley, and repeat director, Anna C. Bahow, for their brilliant work! Only 4 performances left of this incredible show and two are sold out. 

"[Ronnie Malley] transforms from emir to courtier to slave just as the chameleonic Ziryab doubtless would have done a millennium ago. Chronicling the life of the refugee, exile, wanderer and idealist, 'Ziryab' makes Malley a medium for cultural resolution then and now."

-Irene Hsiao, Newcity Stage

Take an enchanting musical journey back to 9th century Islamic Spain with Muslim American musical impresario Ronnie Malley. Arabic music, poetry, and songs breathe life into the story of Ziryab, a former slave whose musical abilities brought him fame throughout Al-Andalus: a land where Christians, Jews and Muslims co-existed for over seven centuries and created a unique and diverse society.
