Jewish East End of London Opera #general


Alice Josephs
 

Some listers might be interested to hear news of a new opera about London's
East End and its Jewish boxers. The opera is based on the life of "The
Whitechapel Whirlwind" Jack "Kid" Berg who rose to sporting stardom in the
1920s and 1930s. There is a discussion before this preview on the East End's
Jewish boxers.

For information on the preview performance on March 29th
