Mosheh re-enacts the biblical saga of Moses as an ancient-futuristic ritual, contrasting the feminine perspectives of Moses sister, wife, and two mothers with the voice of God, a jealous and fearsome father figure. Indie Opera composer Yoav Gal depicts Moses early years, reimagined in the creators own environment of contemporary grungy Brooklyn, as well as in his homeland of Israel. Gal specializes in the marriage of music and image, and has created works for Bang on a Can and Kaufman Center/Merkin Hall, among others. Kristin Marting directs.
Mosheh is presented as part of Culturemart 2008.
