I Wish to Die Singing: Voices From The Armenian Genocide

‘Who, after all, today remembers the annihilation of the Armenians?’ Adolf Hitler, 1939

Commemorating the centenary of the deportations that began the Armenian Genocide, I Wish To Die Singing – Voices from the Armenian Genocide is a controversial documentary drama uncovering the forgotten secrets of a denied genocide.

The Armenian Genocide of 1915-16 was perpetrated by the Ottoman Turkish Government against the Armenians, a Christian minority in a Muslim state. Up to one and a half million people died. To this day, the Turkish Government refuses to admit that the genocide ever took place.

Following the journey of several characters, I Wish To Die Singing includes eye-witness reportage, images, music, poetry from Armenia’s greatest poets, and verbatim survivors testimonies from one of the greatest historical injustices of all time.

I Wish To Die Singing received its world premiere at the Finborough Theatre, London, in April 2015.
