Kleztival São Paulo 2013 Opening Night

The 4th Kleztival São Paulo got off to a great start this evening with Frank London's "A Night In The Old Marketplace" before a near-capacity audience. This is my first time attending the festival and seeing this show. The work is a fusion of music and storytelling, with the music and singing alternating with the narration. Five outstanding vocalists took to the stage, including The Klezmatics' Lorin Sklamberg. With eleven performers in all, this was quite a production, including projected animations onto a screen on stage. The show will be presented again during the festival, which will run through 3 October. Congratulations to the Kleztival 2013 organizers for putting on such a great event, especially these days, when arts budgets are tight. It is my hope that Kleztival continues to draw enthusiastic support from the Brazilian public, and the São Paulo Jewish Community. Congratulations on such a fine event!
