Production Description
A fairytale-like story of a pure-hearted young woman who triumphs over her tormentors, a scheming stepmother, and a wicked witch. This operetta by Avram Goldfaden is one of the very earliest works of Yiddish theatre and the first to be produced in America. The fully restored orchestrations are based, in part, on pre-Holocaust musical arrangements which were saved from destruction at the hands of the Nazis by the famed “Paper Brigade” of the YIVO in Vilna, who risked their lives to save thousands of unique documents and manuscripts. This fully-staged work is the culmination of a project to restore this classic which National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene (NYTF) began in 2017. In Yiddish with English and Russian subtitles.
