New Budapest Orpheum Society (NBOS)

Experience the musical tradition of the European Jewish cabaret which
thrived from the 1880s through the mid 20th century; from Eastern Europe
to Central Europe; from the rural shtetl to the cosmopolitan ghetto.
The NBOS, an eight-member ensemble, revives hauntingly beautiful songs
from these troupes and from composers and lyricists in exile. The
performance will mix skits, comedy, and songs in German, Hebrew, Yiddish
and English with commentary.

Pre-concert talk (free to ticket holders): 6:15-6:45 p.m., "Jewish
Cabaret: The Stories Behind the Stereotypes"
