The PICCOLO TEATRO MUSI-
CALE, of the City of Rome, coming
to Masonic Auditorium for its pre-
miere May 7, offers a rare treat
with its definitive performances of
Italian comic opera of the Baroque
period. The little opera company
of 40, founded and directed by
Maestro Renato Fasano, features a
roster of 16 of Italy's leading
opera singers, headed by the noted
baritone Sesto Bruscantini.
Chayym Zeldis, former Detroiter
whose poetry and prose writings
have won wide acclaim, has col-
lected a number of his noteworthy
verses into an impressive book
which has been published by Re-
constructionist Press under the
title "Seek Haven."
Gathered in several sections
subtitled "The Battle for Israel,"
"F or ef a the r s," "Holocaust,"
"Sparks" and "The Holy Land,"
Zeldis' creative efforts represent
an inspired group of poems that
are filled with feeling, based on
impressions of the author's dedi-
cation to Jewish lore, his life in
Israel as a settler a number of
years ago, his labors in research
into Jewish historical experiences.
The "Holocaust" group is es-
pecially moving, including his
poetic outcries in such verses as
"For the Perished Children," "I
Spoke to Messiah," "On the Barb-
ed-Wire." This group commences
with "I Searched for the Children"
broods over the search for chil-
dren "in the snow as far as my
mind could go" and laments:
"I dropped upon
ribs of snow,
searching as far
as my body
Holy Land and in "Mount Carmel,"
in which he is "dreaming of days
gone by," he sings:
"Dreaming in time's deep ocean,
Of rain clouds bursting on your back
And thunder's sullen groans
When on your screaming tanks
Elijah shattered Baal's dark
This small book is filled with
the result of a poet's muse that
is marked by power, brilliant writ-
ing, marked by a deep Jewish
Chayym Zeldis had won an Avery
Hopwood Award in Poetry at the
University of Michigan and the
John Day Novel Award at the New
School for Social Research. He is
the author of a novel, "Streams
in the Wilderness."
