Sunday, January 19th, 5:00 pm
Movie afternoon: Rabbi Wolff – A gentleman before the Lord

Location: Migwan, Basel

The film “Rabbi Wolff” is the portrait of the most unlikely Rabbi in the world. At nearly 90 years old Willy Wolff, who holds the post as State Rabbi of North-East Germany, still lives in a small house near London. The film shows Wolff’s busy daily routine, including commuting from England to Germany, and looks at his turbulent past: from fleeing Nazi Germany with his family as a child, to leaving behind his career as a political correspondent, to becoming a most respected rabbi.

Playing time: 90 minutes, followed by drinks and finger food.
In German with English subtitles


Mizmorim Festival – «TOUR DA PONTE»

January 23-26, 2020


The sixth Mizmorim Festival is dedicated to one of the most colorful personalities of the 18th century: Lorenzo Da Ponte (1749-1838). Together with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, he composed Le nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni and Così fan tutte, three masterpieces of the opera, which are unique in their dramaturgical and musical sophistication.

Da Ponte’s literary work shows in a variety of ways how music and poetry can influence each other. Based on this, the concerts of the Mizmorim Festival 2020 will follow musical and literary developmental lines and present a wide variety of works from the time of Da Pontes to our present.
