FOLK ORATORIO | Frank London's "A Night in the Old Marketplace"
Yiddish Book Center
Amherst, MA
Share this event:


This modern retelling of I.L. Peretz's 1907 play Bay nakht afn altn mark is a mad mash-up of psychedelic klezmer, Kurt Weill, and folk tunes from the Old Country gone electric. It tells the story of the badkhn, a traditional Jewish wedding jester, who over the course of one long night challenges God's authority by attempting to revive the dead and bring on the end of days. Conceived and directed by Alexandra Aron, with music composed by Frank London and lyrics and text by Glen Berger (Broadway's Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), this multimedia concert features an all-star cast of singers and musicians, including London and his Klezmatics cofounder Lorin Sklamberg, with Yidstock Artistic Director Seth Rogovoy as special guest narrator.
