Reclaimed Voices Concerts

Our Reclaimed Voices Concerts highlight the work of Jewish composers and librettists who were silenced or exiled during the Second World War. The multi-media concerts tell the stories of these artists and showcase their work through live performances of their music. The concerts were created with the purpose of educating the public and presenting in-depth looks at the lives of these composers. Folks Operetta has written and performed five different concerts over the past five years highlighting artists from the 1920s and 1930s. The concerts include the following:

Goodbye Berlin, Aloha Hawaii! The Jazz Operettas of Paul Ábrahám. (premieres April 14, 2019)
Forbidden Opera: The Lost Music of the Second World War
Moon over Berlin: The Music of a Great City
Operetta and the Great War: The Forgotten Shows of World War I
Operetta in Exile: The Music Silenced by the Third Reich
