The Band's Visit

The Band's Visit





A David Yazbek musical based on the screenplay by Eran Kolirin, celebrating the deeply human ways music and laughter connect us all.


Story:

An Egyptian Police Band arrives in Israel to play a concert. After a mix-up at the border, they are sent to a remote village in the middle of the desert. With no bus until morning and no hotel in sight, these unlikely travelers are taken in by the locals. Under the spell of the desert sky, their lives become intertwined in the most unexpected ways.
