KING DAVID show is the new night experience at the Tower of David Museum

KING DAVID show is the new Tower of David Museum night time experience in which the majestic story of David, from shepherd-to-king, comes to life in a completely new cinematic production projected onto the walls and archaeological excavations of the ancient citadel.

The production uses art, film and music to tell the timeless story of David in a  multi-disciplinary celebration  of color that illuminates the citadel at night.

The story begins 3000 years ago with the young and handsome shepherd boy in the fields of Bethlehem who is anointed by the Prophet Samuel. This young boy is also a courageous warrior, poet and gifted musician who becomes a resourceful leader. After the death of King Saul, when the Tribes of Israel chose David as King, he ascended to Jerusalem to establish his capital here.

This story has been the inspiration for artists for centuries. Here you can experience an exciting virtual tour among great works of art by Chagall, Matisse, Michelangelo and others in an artistic tribute to the artists, painters and sculptors who immortalized the image of the celebrated King David.
