Purimshpiel 2020, Two Premium Seats.
To be held at Temple Beth Jacob in March of 2020. An annual tradition at Temple Beth Jacob, for two decades the Purimshpiel has become a major Concord, NH happening, performing to sold out audiences.
What is a Purimsphiel? The recognizably modern Purimshpiel emerged in its dramatic-musical format in the 19th century, in Germany, influenced by opera and the changing perceptions of Jewish community life in western Europe (though its early history dates to the 12th century). The subject matter similarly became westernized, both socially and politically.
Since then, Purimshpiels – whether in their minimalistic spoofs or at their most bombastic performances – have also tended to satirize contemporary political culture while continuing to take in the musical culture of their day – from opera through rock and pop to hip-hop. Whether amateur or professional, they have moved far from their theological and folkloristic origins, but continue to offer a vehicle for satire and comedy about Jewish life and major issues of the day.

Generously donated by Temple Beth Jacob.
