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!

BOUNCE: The Basketball Opera

Having just returned from Alaska, Gilad is already in rehearsals for his role as COACH in a presentation of Ardea Arts’ relatively new opera about a high school basketball star coping with the influence of money and fame on team ethics.

This is a really fun project for Gilad, as the opera combines several different genres from both the classical and pop realms, something he has been cultivating with his own OPROCK℠ concert.
