The story of Ester, the unexpected empress in the court of benevolent ancient Persian Emperor Xerxes, is depicted in movement from the point of view of the women of the court.
The ladies bring to life this charming drama characterizing the subtle emotions of various key players in the story. These are Ester (Justine Sheedy), Queen Vashti (Lisa Hoyt), Artemesia (Kathryn Mecham) and the messenger Tizsavar or Fast Rider (Laura Taylor). The typical warmth, politeness and mutual appreciation characteristic of Persia is accessed to reveal the beauty of the workings of the one true God who was the architect of the Persian Empire and who called Cyrus as His prophet king to establish a kind and caring beneficent world power. The declaration of human rights and respectful policies of Persian Emperor Cyrus were eventually reiterated on paper in the establishment of the original US government. In the Bible story one wonders if Queen Vashti was actually fatigued from social responsibilities at court and viewed Ester as a welcome replacement. This dance version of the familiar story considers the goodness and kindness of all concerned. The wedding celebration presents many nations who benefited from the unifying policy of mutual respect and good will of ancient Persia. We should remember that Ester was not Jewish from Judah but was from Benjamin the blood brother of Joseph who was the chosen of Israel and also the direct ancestor of the Persians through his great grandson Eran (Iran). In scripture, the name Israel defined the descendants of Joseph while the descendants of Judah were known by his name or referred to as Jerusalem. After numerous disappointments with Judah and Jerusalem, God stated in Jeremiah 49:38: "I will set my throne in Elam" (Persia) and in Daniel 10:13: "I remained there with the kings of Persia" which was the Persian Achaemenian Empire of Cyrus, of Darius and Xerxes depicted in this drama.
