“Circular 14” at the Sousa Mendes Foundation Benefit

In 2015 Gilad was approached by composer Neely Bruce about performing excerpts from his oratorio “Circular 14: The Apotheosis of Aristedes”, which tells the story of a Portuguese diplomat who saved over 30,000 World War II refugees in 1940 by issuing them illegal visas to his neutral country.

On October 29th, Gilad will have the honor to sing a duet from this piece in an event to benefit the Aristedes de Sousa Mendes Foundation.

Coming up Oct. 24 & 26: The Dybbuk!

Gilad is very excited to be singing the leading role of Rabbi Azrael in this reading of scenes and arias from Joel Mandelbaum’s 1972 opera, based on the Ansky play about a Jewish exorcism. The idea for this reading has been brewing for the past 5 years, which was the latest collaboration between the composer and Mr. Paz, when the latter sang the two prayers from act IV of this opera.

The reading will be performed with a 45-piece orchestra, as well as a microtonal keyboard, and will feature a cast of excellent singers!
