WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Melting Pot, written by Israel Zangwill, tells the story of a young Jewish composer and émigré -- survivor of a brutal pogrom and now living in tenement New York -- catches both the ear of a leading orchestra conductor and the eye of a Russian woman of noble parentage. Struggling against racism, poverty, and obscurity, he must choose to embrace his role as champion of his people's history, or to find personal liberty outside of his own heritage.
