An opera by Ricky Ian Gordon
Libretto by William M. Hoffman

Morning Star tells the moving story of an immigrant Jewish family in the
early 20th-century struggling to find a better life on the Lower East Side
of Manhattan. Gordon's rich score takes listeners on a journey through
love, joy, heartbreak, and loss. The production will be staged in the
historic Eldridge Street Synagogue (pictured above) on the Lower East
Side, among the pews where the characters from the opera would have sat.

The Museum at Eldridge Street, a non-sectarian cultural organization, was
founded with a mission to restore and interpret its home, the historic
1887 Eldridge Street Synagogue, and serve people of all backgrounds with
educational and cultural programs inspired by the landmark building and
its gateway Lower East Side neighborhood.

The Museum at Eldridge Street is housed in the Eldridge Street Synagogue,
a magnificent National Historic Landmark that has been meticulously
restored since 2007. Opened in 1887, the synagogue is the first great
house of worship built in America by Jewish immigrants from Eastern
Europe. Today, it is the only remaining marker of the great wave of Jewish
migration to the Lower East Side that is open to a broad public who wish
to visit Jewish New York. Exhibits, tours, cultural events and educational
programs tell the story of Jewish immigrant life, explore architecture and
historic preservation, inspire reflection on cultural continuity, and
foster collaboration and exchange between people of all faiths, heritages
and interests.

of VIP benefits including early access to ticket purchases and
opportunities for exclusive behind-the-scenes experiences.
