    Ernest Bloch's only opera, written in his mid-twenties, in Paris and in Geneva. He invested a lot of orchestral music in that work and it's wonderful! The story is told as much by the orchestra than by the singers. The style is a successful mix of Mussorskian drama and Wagnerian leitmotiv. While I enjoyed the music a lot, I was less appreciative of the French pronunciation of German speakers. Call me old-fashioned but I like to understand what is sung. Thankfully, an English translation was done in the 1970s and this opera has been performed in Manhattan, Long Beach, and Chicago.

    In the chronology of Ernest Bloch's artistic development this opera coincides with his realization that he could not make a living just by composing music. Opinions differ on when this opera was completed but clearly a long period of compositional inactivity followed, until his first Jewish cycle, beginning in 1912. During those years (1906-1912?), Bloch helped his family business, lectured at the Geneva conservatory, conducted orchestras, and raised his family.
