About the event

Elijah’s Violin is a family opera in one act, adapted from a Jewish fairy tale.* It features a magical violin which can release the imprisoned melodies of the heart.

When Princess Shulamit is imprisoned in stone by a mirror demon, her brother Prince Raphael and his friend Zohara look for help. Embedded with mindful breathing and audience participation, the opera follows Rafi and Zohara, in their search for Elijah and his magical violin. In the process, they learn to overcome fears and doubts, and along with Shulamit, discover the liberating power of the heart’s true song.

Music by Meira Warshauer. Libretto by Susan Levi Wallach and Meira Warshauer.

*Adapted from the title story Elijah’s Violin, in Elijah’s Violin and other Jewish Fairy Tales, retold by Howard Schwartz, Harper and Rowe, 1983. Mr. Schwartz found the story in the archives of the Hebrew University in Israel, and notes its source as oral tradition, Egypt.
