King David is a musical, sometimes described as a modern oratorio, with a book and lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Alan Menken. The musical is based on Biblical tales from the Books of Samuel and 1 Chronicles, as well as the text from David's Psalms.
King David is mostly sung-through with little dialogue, and the music swings from pop to jazz to grand choral arrangements with a large orchestra and a large choir.
