(b 1955 )

The American composer Bruce Adolphe enjoys an active career as a teacher and composer; he has written a series of successful works, including four operas, two of which are related to his own Jewish background. His output also includes a quantity of chamber music, orchestral music and songs.

Opera and Vocal Music

Adolphe’s operas include a work based on Edgar Allan Poe’s The Tell-Tale Heart, a comic opera The Amazing Adventure of Alvin Allegretto, and two works of Jewish inspiration: The False Messiah, based on Scholem’s Life of Shabtai Zvi, and Mikhoels the Wise, on the life and murder of a leading actor in the Yiddish Theatre in Soviet Russia. His songs include Out of the Whirlwind, settings of words by victims of the Holocaust, and Ladino Songs of Love and Suffering, with traditional Ladino texts.
