The Old Testament story of a blustering genocidal despot and the intrepid woman who resists and brings him down finds voice in one of the most innovative works of the violent, volatile, and tragically short-lived Alessandro Stradella.

Please join us for this groundbreaking masterwork by “the Caravaggio of Music" in a return of last year’s critically praised production celebrating the story of a minority’s triumph over religious persecution.

The March 5th performance takes place in the historic Brotherhood Synagogue, once a stop on the Underground Railroad.

Ester Liberatrice del Popolo Ebreo is co-produced by NYU Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò and the American Society for Jewish Music in partnership with Centro Primo Levi, with the generous support of the Charles Schwartz Foundation for Music, the DuBose and Dorothy Heyward Memorial Fund, and Brotherhood Synagogue.
