Kaddish in Hungary: A Magical Time

Kaddish performed to three over-sold audiences at the Jurányi Incuabator House in Budapest on June 5, 6, and 7. It was a magical experience. Check out our Press and Video/Image pages to learn more about it. Here is a photo teaser:

One story:
Throughout the entire development of Kaddish, both Imre and Magda Kertész were hugely supportive. We could think of no better way to honor them than to perform Mr. Kertész’s text in Budapest, where Imre was born and they both reside. After our final performance, they warmly invited us into their home.

When we arrived we found bouquets upon bouquets of beautiful flowers adorning their apartment. With tears in her eyes, Magda told us that after seeing the performances, many of their friends knocked on their door and gave them flowers as a token of congratulations on the success of Kaddish as a celebration of Imre’s vibrant and incredible text. Of course, we started crying too.
