The Yellow Ticket featuring Alicia Svigals and Marilyn Lerner Philadelphia Jewish Music Festival
The Yellow Ticket, a live multimedia concert event featuring violinist Alicia Svigals’ original score for the eponymous 1918 silent film. Svigals, one of the world’s foremost klezmer fiddlers, will perform her brand-new score. Remarkably progressive for its time, the film The Yellow Ticket tells the story of Lea (played by famed actress Pola Negri), a young Jewish woman who hides her identity in order to study medicine and is coerced into prostitution to pay the rent.
