THE COVENANT is an original dramatic presentation recounting the miraculous story of the People of Israel, spanning from the calling of Abraham until the establishment of the modern State.
At this critical moment in Israel’s history, it is especially fitting that the International Christian Embassy is able to present this reminder of Israel’s secure destiny, according to the promises found in the Bible.
The Canadian production of THE COVENANT, featuring over 60 stage performers and musicians, represents the culmination of seven years of touring throughout Israel, Europe and the USA. This stunning production was captured in High Definition video on May 13th 2007 at the renowned Toronto Centre for the Arts which featured a powerful combination of performers from Israel and other parts of the world along with a Canadian cast of approximately 30 people.
The ICEJ Canada produced THE COVENANT DVD in 5.1 Digital Surround Sound with subtitles in 12 languages: Dutch, English, Finnish, French, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
This stunning performance unfolds in 90 mins of pleasure for the whole family, including Special Features of why the Murens wrote THE COVENANT, how we produced it and the reaction of the audience.
Dear Donna (Holbrook, ICEJ Canada National Director),
From our previous conversations, you know what a cynic I am and that I am not easily impressed. In fact I was apprehensive before watching The Covenant as the subject has great meaning for me. What I saw totally blew me away. I cried real tears along with everyone else who has seen the production and I can't wait to show it to the rest of my family and professional colleagues. There is nothing in the production I can criticize. The writing, acting, singing, dancing, choreography staging and design were first rate. The camera work and sound quality was brilliant. The music and lyrics always informative and the arrangements were rich and supportive of the action. And there was no lack of humour and wit. Top notch professional work. With the exception of one work, I've never seen so many costume changes in my life. I dare any professional company to match what this group of so-called amateurs brought to the stage. Thank you for sharing this with me and thank everyone involved on my behalf.
In admiration- Ron Graner
