William Shakespeare's classic THE MERCHANT OF VENICE was performed with critical success on June 2015.
International baritone and actor David Serero will play the lead role of Shylock.
Located at the Center Jewish of History, the A.S.F promotes Jewish Sephardi culture.
This Merchant of Venice production will adapted into a sephardi style featuring Jewish ladino music of the era. It's a world premiere adaptation.
When they were living in Spain and Portugal, Sephardi Jews were playing Ladinos music (language mixed of Spanish and Hebrew) before they were chased by the Spanish Inquisition and had to flee to Middle Eastern countries such as Morocco, Tunisia..etc.
