Song Of Solomon



Thespis Festival NYC

Song of Solomon is my ode to opera, a great opportunity to create a musical theater / opera aesthetic, in which from start to finish our show sings, but conflict serves as the main root towards building our show.
Directing is a LABOR OF LOVE. We want to hold hands with dreamers who dare to take action and that are not afraid to risk. People who rather invest in process than in results. I have to say that 5 minutes into reading Song of Solomon I was already thinking how I could change my month plans to be able to join last minute this epic adventure. Little did I know. Andrew Bell and Neil Van Leeuwen are two really passionate, intense, dangerous, fun and honest collaborators ironically just the same words they used for me as director. I will always be beyond grateful for the trust they put in me, the cast and the work of the entire team.

NYC is a complicated place for devolving ART. A FESTIVAL provides you with the perfect opportunity to explore things. It was beautiful to guide and inspire the actors to listen to their instinct and follow their impulses while collaborating with a very committed team of creative people. /Luis Salga

“We are the most fortunate writers on the planet, because our magician is Luis Salgado.  The most passionate, intense, dangerous, fun and honest collaborator who guides us across that bridge with bright eyes.  He grabbed our vision, winked in trust, and jumped out of the plane.  He teaches us every day about our own story, and we can’t help but smile, nod, and trust him with our dream of dreams.I’m a paragraph.

“Director Luis Salgado helps nurture this new musical and gives it the size that the music calls for. Salgado made great use of this long space in the blocking, especially in the transitions. This musical shares the epic style of Les Miz, but in the world of Ancient Israel and King Solomon.” – Nikomeh Anderson (MONOLODGE)a
