New Home of Hebrew University Med School `Moses' Opera Plagued by Censorship
LONDON—It may yet prove that
Moses had an easier time of get-
ting the Israelites to the Promised
Land than it will be for the Royal
Shakespeare Theater to present—
with tact — Schoenberg's opera
"Moses and Aaron".
The theater has just received a
memo from Buckingham Palace to
go easy on the orgy scene. Arnold
Schoenberg's opera calls for rape,
murder and suicide in a gripping
Act II climax, and the order has
come to "be tasteful."
It may be recalled from the
Bible that when Moses was re-
ceiving the Commandments from _
God, his people got tired of wait-
ing and started to engage in wild
excesses for their pagan gods.
Schoenberg wanted real animals
slaughtered on the stage and four
nude virgins offered to the golden
calf. Peter Hall, director of the
theater, reportedly has hired a
squad of strippers for the role.
