2-22-11: Brundibár!

February 22, 2011 at 7:39 am Leave a comment

On Sunday afternoon at Chizuk Amuno Congregation in Pikesville, a group of local students and others will present an extraordinary children’s opera called “Brundibár.” Brundibár was composed in 1938, and it was performed more than 50 times in the Theresienstadt concentration camp in occupied Czechoslovakia.  Jeremy Swerling is the producer and composer behind this staging. He talks with Tom Hall about the opera and the lessons we can learn from it.

Hans Krasa’s Brundibár starts at 3:00 in the Krieger Auditorium of the Chizuk Amuno Congregation, on Stevenson Road in Pikesville.  Before the performance, the noted author and UMBC Professor of Visual Arts, Dr. Ellen Handler Spitz, will give a talk entitled “Reflections on Brundibár”.
