"Truly magnificent." Marc Goldberg, Kinnernet

Our Hearts Light the Way is a heart-lit journey through the stunning 12th century St. Lazare Cathedral. As soon as you pass the church threshold you are blessed with a necklace and the directive, "may your heart light our way..." you are immediately disoriented by a thick fog that blocks your vision. In the distance you hear a cello playing, an echoing voice beckons you forward. As you walk, your necklace begins to glow with the voice. You look around and others are glowing as well. Hearts sparkle all around you through the haze. Hadas Kleinman’s ethereal cello tones pull everyone forward; the crowd begins surrounding her in a shell like formation. Suddenly, a guitar rings out from behind the crowd, from the center of the cathedral. Pedro Soler and Gaspar Claus, father and son, play an exquisite set of Spanish Guitar and cello. The acoustics are incredible; every strum resonates throughout this stone palace. For the finale Hadas, Pedro, and Gaspar join together - amplified - looping - the music swells to an emotional crescendo. Everyone's heart beats in unison, growing in intensity till the music stops, still, pure white. Fin.
