WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Two musical tales of Jewish humor and heartbreak. The evening of opera begins with a 20-minute curtain raiser, Seymour Barab's raucous, off-color opera vaudeville From Oy to Vey. Following this curtain raiser is Lady of The Castle, a ghostly post-Holocaust chamber opera based on a true story and an Israeli play by Lea Goldberg with music and lyrics by Mira J. Spektor. Lissa Moira directs a cast of five, including Darcy Dunn, Douglas McDonnell, James Parks, Bennett Pologe, and Amanda Yachechak.

From Oy to Vey is a 20-minute raucous off-color opera vaudeville curtain raiser of five select pieces from the larger work by Seymour Barab.

Lady of The Castle is set in 1947 after the Holocaust. Is there a young Jewish girl still hidden in the old castle? Based on a true story and Lea Goldberg's Israeli play, Lady of the Castle is a chamber opera about illusion, reality, love, betrayal, death and hope. Originally commissioned and presented by Theater for the New City in 1982.
