Evgeny Kissin by Sasha Gusov
From Shtetl to Stage celebrates the journey of Yiddish culture from Old World to New through music, song, poetry, and drama. A company of extraordinary Yiddish talent—as well as stars of the classical, folk, and theater worlds—mix chestnuts from the Yiddish theater and folk song repertoire with Yiddish-tinged vaudeville, art song, classical music, and klezmer in a program that explores how Eastern European Jewish culture interacted with and contributed to American culture at large.

Part of: Migrations: The Making of America, Russian and Eastern European Jewish Migration, and Around the Globe

Evgeny Kissin is also performing April 25 and May 16.
