The young members of David Stern’s opera company and Atelier Lyrique, Opera Fuoco, return to the Mona Bismarck American Center with their performance of the classic 1923 Yiddish operetta, “The Golden Bride.”
Originally shown at the Second Avenue Theater in New York, the heart of “Jewish Broadway” on the Lower East Side, this farcical, tuneful romance — part old-fashioned musical comedy, part straight-up opera — is a fantasy that spoke directly to the hopes of immigrants. David Stern animates the evening with his analysis of the music (by Joseph Rumshinsky, lyrics by Louis Gilrod and a libretto by Frieda Freiman) and story of the feisty Godele, bringing to life this newly rediscovered musical gem.
