The Golden Bride – Rumshinsky

 

Presentation

Opera Fuoco’s young artists travel to Sweden with this quintessential 1923 Yiddish operetta, “Die Goldene Kale,” featuring music by Joseph Rumshinsky, lyrics by Louis Gilrod and a libretto by Frieda Freiman. Originally shown at the Second Avenue Theater, the heart of “Jewish Broadway” on the Lower East Side, this farcical, tuneful romance, part old-fashioned musical comedy, part operetta, is a fantasy that spoke directly to the hopes and dreams of the immigrant community. The story of the feisty Goldele, a rediscovered musical gem, enjoyed a revival at the National Yiddish Theater in New York in 2015 and a performance by Opera Fuoco at the Mona Bismarck American Center in 2016.
