Was Richard Wagner the original author of his operas, or did he steal from a forgotten jewish composer? How would the Ring cycle sound in yiddish? How many 4-hour operas can you make out of jewish mythology?

These are all great questions, the basis for a new opera project currently under development at LABA - a laboratory for jewish culture at the 14th Street Y.
