The Collegiate Chorale presents the U.S. premiere of The Road of Promise, a new concert adaptation of Kurt Weill and Franz Werfel’s epic 1937 spectacle, The Eternal Road. The Road of Promise tells the story of a young boy who knows nothing of his Jewish heritage, but finds himself at a synagogue under threat of persecution. As all await their fate, the Rabbi brings stories from the Old Testament to life, enlightening the boy, who emerges as a new hope for his people. Tony Award-winning conductor/director Ted Sperling leads a cast of world-renowned singers and a 200-voice chorus and symphony orchestra through Kurt Weill’s magnificent musical score.  Watch this video to learn more!

The May 7 performance will feature a pre-concert talk at 6pm, presented in partnership with the Museum of Jewish Heritage.
