Followup: Die goldene Kale

Our post of 6 June 2014 concerned the New York performance of Joseph Rumshinsky's Di goldene kale (The Golden Bride), a 1923 Yiddish-American operetta. The performance, with piano accompaniment, was based on a score prepared by Michael Ochs in conjunction with his critical edition forthcoming in Music of the United States of America (MUSA). The MUSA volume includes the full score, lyrics, and libretto in transliterated Yiddish, together with an English translation. This work is the first from the entire Yiddish-American musical stage to appear in print in any form other than vocal scores of individual songs.

COMING SOON: a concert version with full orchestra will conclude the summer concerts at Rutgers University on August 5, 2015 at 7 p.m., details HERE. It is said that ticket sales are vigorous.
