Leah Lax

When Leah Lax was asked to write an opera with composer Christopher Theofanidis to celebrate local immigrants, she sought out people willing to tell her about their journeys to the United States. The result was transformative. It was if she had discovered America, found its great, beating heart.
Lax has had a dual career as an author and a librettist. Her previous book - now an opera by composer Lori Laitman - is entitled Uncovered: How I Left Hasidic Life and Finally Came Home
