Film, Video The Accidental Rise of the Modern Yiddish Theater
About this Item
- The Accidental Rise of the Modern Yiddish Theater
- Alyssa Quint focuses on the early years of the modern Yiddish theater through the works of one of its best-known and most colorful figures, Avrom Goldfaden (1840-1908). Goldfaden was one of the first playwrights to stage a commercially viable Yiddish-language theater and his plays were performed frequently for Jewish audiences. Quint uses Goldfaden's theatrical works as a way to understand the social life of Jews in late Imperial Russia, exploring connections between artistic production and larger social structures during an important moment in Russian Jewish history.
