Opera Idaho: Brundibar

When: Thu., April 16, 7 p.m. 2015

Enjoy this children’s opera by Jewish Czech composer Hans Krása with a libretto by Adolf Hoffmeister, originally performed by the children of the Theresienstadt concentration camp in occupied Czechoslovakia. It tells the story of Annette and Little Joe, a fatherless sister and brother. The opera contains obvious symbolism in the triumph of the helpless and needy children over the tyrannical organ grinder, but has no overt references to the conditions under which it was written and performed. However, certain phrases were to the audience clearly anti-Nazi.

Price: $16-$32
