Welcome to Gethsemane the musical
Gethsemane (Geth-sem-ah-nee) is a 2 hour long musical film with 44 tracks that are fresh and contemporary with rock, acoustic and classical themes.
Gethsemane is a love story set 2,000 years ago in Israel between Nadi and Chloe. Nadi is a carpenter from Nazareth who works with Jesus, and Chloe is the daughter of a rich merchant, Joseph of Arimathea. Nadi has a choice to make, becoming a Zealot and fighting the Romans with his brother Levi, or being with the love of his life, Chloe, who is Jesus’s closest friend.
"Memorable and glorious"
This is a brand new way of showcasing a musical that hasn't been done before. As technology and AI resources grow, it is important that writers keep up to date with them. That is why Gethsemane is being shown at Fringe events around the world, places where new, exciting and innovative projects can be viewed by open minded audience members looking for new experiences. Some people may not like the use of AI technology, but it can bring so many more new projects to life. However, if you do not enjoy watching the videos, you can listen to the music as MP3 files.
