Yeshiva Pageant Seeks Volunteers

Volunteers are being sought for the mob scenes in the Biblical grand opera pageant, “Moses,” which is being presented on December 1 and 2 at the New York Coliseum, Bronx, for the benefit of the Yeshiva College Scholarship Fund.

Alfred Salmaggi, who is in charge of the production of Rossini’s opera, said: “We shall welcome amateurs who have some experience in local societies and especially those who appeared in the recent pageant, ‘Romance of a People,’ for they already will know something of what is required of them.”

Applicants may apply at the Central Jewish Institute, 125 East Eighty-fifth street, Manhattan, on the evenings of November 12 and 13 from 7 to 9 p.m. George Dandria, cast manager of the Chicago Opera Company, will be in charge.

“Moses” is described as a “Biblical grand opera pageant” and the extra actors and actress will participate in several spectacular scenes, including the famous separation of the Red Sea finale.
