Songs of Solomon

Golden State Productions presents the official Boston regional premiere of SONGS OF SOLOMON, a powerful drama based on the true story of an orphaned Armenian boy who grows up to be the influential composer known as Komitas.

Inspired by true events, the film follows a childhood friendship, torn apart by the horrific Hamidian massacres infiltrated by the Ottoman Empire. A brave Turkish woman at a time of dire prejudice risks her own life and the life of her family to save her best friend who is hunted down for her religious beliefs. 

This epic portrayal spans from 1881 to 1915, in Constantinople, taking us on an emotional journey to the last concert given by Archbishop Komitas. A biographical film, the action takes place on the backdrop of the sacred and ancient music of Archbishop Solomon, also known as Komitas.

This is an Armenian-language film with English subtitles. See the trailer at songsofsolomon.org.

Tickets: $55 (includes all fees). A Q&A with the director and producer will follow the screening.
