NYC Premiere | Multi-Media Concert

Iron & Coal

January 10, 11 at 8pm at Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College of Criminal Justice | 90 Minutes

A searing rock-opera, Iron & Coal zeros in on the relationship between a father and son in the shadow of the Holocaust. Taking inspiration from his father, an Auschwitz survivor, composer Jeremy Schonfeld weaves together his personal experiences with excerpts from his father’s memoir “Absence of Closure.” The ghosts of a vanished world mix with the present, brought to life through animation, a rock band, an orchestra, and multigenerational choruses, to celebrate the indomitable spirit of our ancestors and the legacy we carry with us.
