The lyrics draw heavily on The Song of Songs – Jesus is portrayed as the Bridegroom and addresses the women as His beloved.

Other text comes from works of the Nag Hamadi library (gospels and religious writings discovered in 1946) including the Gospels of Mary Magdelene and Sts Thomas and Philip, and from the poetry of Teresa of Avila’s and Islamic mystics Rumi and Hafiz.

In this premier production the role of Jesus was played by Michael Martin and Sophia was played by Louise Page.
