ARTABAN The Other Wiseman
The story of Artaban, The Other Wiseman, as narrated by Jesse Bennett on the CD and as printed in the Performance Book, is based on Daniel Carter’s epic musical play by the same name (yet to be released), which was inspired by Henry Van Dyke's original story, The Other Wiseman (1896).
The story presents three major and pivotal confrontations between the magus, Artaban, the principal protagonist, and Rashne, his former close friend and fellow magus, but now formidable antagonist. Each confrontation, although painful, offers Artaban rich opportunity to learn and grow as he goes about seeking the Messiah and helping others along the way. More ...
