Join Orchestra Miami for a Florida Premiere!
Orchestra Miami presents the Florida premiere of the oratorio The Road of Promise, adapted from Kurt Weill’s opera The Eternal Road by Ed Harsh. This version condenses Weill’s original 4- act opera into 14 movements lasting a little over two hours. The opera was conceived as a method of raising the American public’s awareness to Hitler’s persecution of the Jews in 1937. Set in a synagogue where Jews hide as a pogrom rages outside, the story combines Biblical & pre-World War II Jewish history. The performances will be at Temple Emanu-el in Miami Beach, the oldest Conservative congregation on Miami Beach and considered to be one of the most beautiful synagogues in America.
The Road of Promise cast features stars from the Metropolitan Opera and a combined choir of over 100 voices. The cast is led by tenor Anthony Dean Griffey in the roles of the Rabbi/Narrator & baritone Mark Delavan in the roles of Abraham/ Moses/ Jeremiah, and soprano Elizabeth Caballero as Rachel. The performance will be conducted by Orchestra Miami's Artistic Director, Elaine Rinaldi, with stage direction by Vernon Hartman.
