Yiddish Divas

BY Margot Gorski | 23-Oct-2018
Uniquely Melbourne, Yiddish Divas brings together 10 distinct and captivating female singers from across the generations.
Women’s voices are today being heard as never before and the power, beauty and mystery of female voices of all ages singing in Yiddish will be showcased in a dramatic new show at Melbourne’s Kadimah in November.

Believed to be Australia’s first all-female Yiddish group, Yiddish Divas will present their theatrical and unique interpretations of much-loved classics, as well as traditional and new songs.

Uniquely Melbourne, Yiddish Divas brings together 10 distinct and captivating female singers from across the generations. Aged from 10 to 60 years and every decade in between, the group comprises Melbourne Yiddish stage legends Tomi Kalinski, Karen Feldman, Evie Gawenda, Galit Klas, Freydi Mrocki and Elisa Gray and tomorrow’s stars Rachel Tigel, Noa Coates, Ines Gotmaker and Anouchka Starr. Together they offer a daring show of transformation, diversity and surprise.

Yiddish Divas is directed by Melbourne theatre and music legends, Evelyn Krape and Adam Starr.

Yiddish Divas will perform three shows only at Melbourne’s Kadimah Jewish Cultural Centre: Thursday 8th, Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th November. Tickets start at $25.00.
