Thursday, June 25, 7:30–8:45pm
The Jewish Community Centre, 3636 Shelbourne Street
Everyone is invited to an evening to honour Peter Gary’s oratorio, A Twentieth Century Passion, about the tragic effects of the Holocaust on six million Jews.
The evening features a reading of the libretto (text), and an address by conductor, Barak Tal, from Israel, about the oratorio. It is expected that the premiere performance of A Twentieth Century Passion will be performed in Israel, in 2016 by an orchestra of 120 musicians, led by Mr. Tal. This year, Peter graciously gifted all rights to A Twentieth Century Passion to Yad Vashem, the Jewish people’s living memorial to the Holocaust in Jerusalem, Israel.
