A Musical Story of Love, Loss and Resilience
See it next at The Theatre Royal Haymarket - 17 March 2024
Following the sold-out world premiere run in November 2023, GOLDA is returning to the legendary stage of one of London's most iconic theatres - Theatre Royal Haymarket.

A heartfelt and immersive music show follows the story of a young woman and war refugee as she fled home to find hope in a foreign land.

This moving tale is conveyed by the phenomenal Ukrainian-Israeli singer and actress, Golda Amirova, under the visionary direction of Pavlo Bondarenko, an internationally recognised Ukrainian director and choreographer. Their personal experiences as war refugees infuse authenticity into every note, step, and emotion portrayed on stage.

Featuring virtuoso musicians, extraordinary actors and contemporary dancers, the performance creates a rich emotional landscape, fusing Ukrainian, English, Hebrew, Russian, and Yiddish musical themes. It is a journey through sorrow, joy, and resilience, highlighted by dynamic dance routines and the unique charm of Odessa humour.

More than a theatrical production, GOLDA is a testament to the strength of the human spirit and the enduring power of art in healing trauma and bridging human connections.

‘Explosively joyous, sad, energetic and topical mini-musical’.

‘It’s hypnotic, never a boring note.’

‘The music is wild: soulful Ukrainian-Russian-Jewish jazz, where klezmer, wedding-songs, ballad and rock and memories of Weimar meld together, in Golda’s extraordinary pure voice and wild effortless energy.’

‘It’s about the hope that springs in any room where songs and stories come alive.’

LIBBY PURVES, a theatre critic for The Times, The Telegraph and the BBC
