‘Love means bringing people together, despite the differences or distance between them.’ With these words, Ghalia Benali announced the international concert project The Allegory of Desire on various social media. It is precisely in that spirit that this programme, a collaboration with Vocalconsort Berlin and Zefiro Torna, combines five centuries of settings of the Song of Songs by European composers with traditional and contemporary Arabic songs about desire, love and nostalgia. Its emotional horizon ranges from the sensuously erotic to the mystical and spiritual.
