Music by Na’ama Zisser
Libretto by Samantha Newton and Rachel C. Zisser

The Guildhall School and Royal Opera present the world premiere of a new work by exciting young composer Na’ama Zisser, in a soundworld that thrillingly unites contemporary idioms with the music of Orthodox Hasidic Judaism.

It is the night before Yoel’s wedding, an arranged marriage within his Orthodox Hasidic community. He is wracked with doubt. A chance encounter with a stranger reveals truths about Yoel that change everything.

Mamzer Bastard is the culmination of Zisser’s doctoral residency with the Guildhall School and The Royal Opera.
