WJMF: A Kaddish for Bernie Madoff
Washington Jewish Music Festival presents:
A Kaddish for Bernie Madoff
Markets go up, markets go down. But Madoff’s returns went up, more or less. In a straight line. For forty years. Who wouldn’t want that kind of security – no downturns, just growth? No failure, no loss, no death. It’s beautiful.
But it’s impossible.
Trouble frontwoman Alicia Jo Rabins explores the spiritual implications of the
financial collapse. Her theatrical song cycle—which draws on interviews with
FBI agents and Madoff victims—investigates the intersection of mysticism and
finance, the cycles of life and business, and the true meaning of wealth.
