In The Scarlet Cord, missionaries minister in one of the cruelest regimes the world has known – the communist Soviet Union. The main character, Rahab, learns a hard lesson when she is abandoned by a Soviet commander – the man she desperately loves. In her grief, two missionaries share their hope in Jesus Christ. Afterward, Rahab’s heart is changed and a redemptive story unfolds.From the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, to Singapore’s historic Victoria Theatre, thousands have experienced the professional dance companies of Ballet Magnificat!
