Observations

  1. On 17th January 2019 at 10:28 p.m., benenson noted:

    The name of the cantor who sings the kaddish after Shylock’s forced to renounce his Jewish faith is not given in the credits, but I believe it was the New London Synagogue’s cantor – a Mr Rothschild (I don’t know his first name) who was the most outstanding baritone. The synagogue he belonged to was led by the late and great Rabbi Dr Louis Jacobs. It has to be said that so brilliant was Olivier’s portrayal and the entire Edwardian style of the production, that following Shylock’s failure in court, there was very little interest in anything after his suggested or metaphoric suicide (offstage) – as a result of the profundity of the kaddish sung.
