March 2016 Play at Boston's Vilna Shul: Kultar's Mime
by Gavin Damore
Kultar's Mime is a play that blends painting, poetry, theater and music to tell the stories of Sikh children who survived the 1984 Delhi massacre organized in the wake of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi's assassination.
A collective of young Jewish artists decides to commemorate a1903 Pogrom that targeted Jews in the Russian town of Kishinev. During their journey, they learn about the 1984 massacre of the Sikhs in Delhi and in a powerful moment of embracing the pain of the 'other', they shift focus and decide to tell a story that the world has largely ignored. The play incorporates text from two poems: "Kultar's Mime" by Sarbpreet Singh and "In The City Of Slaughter" by Haim Bialik.
Kultar's Mime comes to the Vilna Shul, Boston's Center for Jewish Culture, after 63 acclaimed performances all over the world.The play is a powerful condemnation of intolerance and violence, which affirms that just as hatred can transcend culture, religion and geography, so can compassion.
Kultar's Mime is directed by J Mehr Kaur, who attends Smith College and is being presented worldwide by The Sikh Research Institute.

Unrequited love never sounded so good. Irresistibly melodic and extraordinarily romantic, Boston Lyric Opera’s new production of Massenet’s Werther is set in an arrondissement outside Paris and a cinematic dreamscape inspired by the poetic realism of film director Jean Renoir. Based on Goethe’s heartbreaking novel, The Sorrows of Young Werther, the story unfolds as a dying artist recounts the love he cannot forget. Tenor Alex Richardson makes his BLO debut as Werther opposite BLO favorite Sandra Piques Eddy. BLO Music Director David Angus conducts the Boston Lyric Opera Orchestra. Crystal Manich (I Puritani 2014) directs.
