The scene is the opening party… then lights dim and we focus on a group of Jews, barely identifiable as such, enjoying the party… lighting reflects a somber mood out of character with the party.]

[sing Hebrew during musical intro]
אֵיכָה יָעִיב בְּאַפּוֹ אֲדֹנָי, אֶת-בַּת-צִיּוֹן–
הִשְׁלִיךְ מִשָּׁמַיִם אֶרֶץ, תִּפְאֶרֶת יִשְׂרָאֵל;
וְלֹא-זָכַר הֲדֹם-רַגְלָיו, בְּיוֹם אַפּוֹ
chorus: God you’re hidden from the world
You haven’t sent us a prophet
I think we just pretend you
See Judah was left behind
Now we’re drinking all this wine
Don’t think I have faith in You
[sing Hebrew during musical interlude]
אֵיכָה יָעִיב בְּאַפּוֹ אֲדֹנָי, אֶת-בַּת-צִיּוֹן–
…הִשְׁלִיךְ מִשָּׁמַיִם אֶרֶץ, תִּפְאֶרֶת יִשְׂרָאֵל;
 God you’re hidden from the world
You haven’t sent us a prophet
I think we just pretend you
See Judah was left behind
Now we’re drinking all this wine
Don’t think I have faith in You
Yeah, our names have become Persian
And our religion a diversion
Don’t think I believe in you
Bat Tzion’s children were starving

And your house they destroyed
Some think their gods killed you

Once your glory protected our land
But your presence is no more
Where could we even find you?
Yeah from you there’s just silence 
Will exile ever be over
Don’t think you will forgive us…
DRAMATIC TRANSITION MUSIC
 (and the story begins)

[I might transition from the musical buildup into al hanisim to tune of Prayer in C. It fits almost perfectly]
