Opening Night of the 23rd Annual Jewish Music Festival – West Coast Premiere

Klezmer giant Frank London has teamed up with acclaimed lyricist Glen Berger and conceiver and director Alex Aron to create twenty-one unique songs based on the legendary 1907 Yiddish play by I.L. Peretz. The groundbreaking score mixes Jewish music, jazz, classical, rock, and world beats with a dose of Kurt Weill and Tom Waits.
