Join our cast of fourteen elementary and middle school students as they perform this special children’s opera.
Attending the performances is free, but donations will be accepted for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
Brundibar is the tale of a poor family whose children seek money to buy milk for their sick mother, only to have their quest thwarted by an evil organ grinder named Brundibar. With the help of three intelligent animals, the children defeat the unjust bully and return home in triumph.
During the Holocaust, children performed this opera 55 times in the Theresienstadt concentration camp/ghetto.
