"Sounds from Shylock's Venice," Geneva, Switzerland, 22 Aug 2016

"Sounds from Shylock's Venice" @ Concerts d'Été à St. Germain festival, featuring Enrico Fink

Monday August 22, 18:30
Eglise St. Germain
Rue des Granges 11
Geneva, Switzerland


Our program commemorates the 500 year anniversary of the founding of the Venice Ghetto and the 400 years since Shakespeare's death. It's a fun program that combines Jewish repertoire: songs and liturgy in Yiddish, Hebrew, Italian, Jewish-Spanish (and Catalan!) with 'mainstream' songs and dances from 16th century Venice; the whole rounded off with texts drawn from Leon Modena's autobiography and legal documents of the era.
