The Merchant of Venice

The Merchant of VeniceT01821207465
Shylock is a proud and defiant man. But when he demands a severe debt to be repaid he becomes a victim of his own intransigence and most seriously, the prejudice of others. Andr? Tchaikowsky was best known as a concert pianist but being a composer meant more to him. The Merchant of Venice is a potent attack on prejudice and feels like a deeply personal response to his experiences as a child in the Warsaw Ghetto. Opera in 3 Acts plus Epilogue.
Music Andre Tchaikowsky
Lyrics John O'Brien
