3WEEKS

Genre: Opera
Yoav Gal, composer; Reuven Namdar, librettist; Ronit Muszkatblit, director

The 14th Street Y, through its LABA program, presents the concert-staging premiere of 3WEEKS, a multi-media opera that traces the events of the Roman siege of Jerusalem. The opera, replete with many subplots, contradicting variations of the story, and commentary, is composed by Yoav Gal, with libretto by Reuven (Ruby) Namdar, music directed by Yegor Shevtsov, and directed by Ronit Muszkatblit. 3WEEKS is scored for nine singers, and twelve musicians. The libretto is in Hebrew and Aramaic, the original languages of the Talmud, and the text sung by the Roman characters was translated back into Latin from Hebrew and Aramaic. The opera was among ten new operatic works in progress selected to be performed at the New York City Opera’s VOX festival in 2011.
