BEHOLD Her Story of Easter is unique. This intimate, original musical drama not only portrays the events of Easter through the eyes and words of the women who were there, but also is performed by an all-women’s group, the Magdalene Ensemble. The 45-minute work is scored for two singers, cello and piano/organ and includes its own set design. Composed by Jim Grant, the all-musical mystery play has enjoyed great success since its premiers in spring 2007.
