      Spectacular World of Jewish Music, a non-profit organization in Israel dedicated to “bringing Jewish music to the forefront of the stage”, is delighted to announce the planned Premiere of The Slave, a new opera by the Jewish American composer Michael Shapiro, in Jerusalem, in the 2022/23 season. The opera is based on the novel The Slave by the famed Isaac Bashevis Singer, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1978. The Singer Literary Trust in New York has given its blessing to staging the Premiere in Jerusalem. The opera The Slave is a classic example of Jewish music – written by a Jewish composer, based on a story with a strong Jewish theme, The Slave can be considered as contributing significantly to the musical heritage of the Jewish people: staging its Premiere in Israel only adds to this significance. For further invitation about this ambitious project, please contact me (Jeffrey or Yaacov Fisher) at
