Sydney premiere production of the children’s opera which was first performed by the Jewish people imprisoned in the Terezín Ghetto in Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia. Brundibár tells the story of a brother and sister who overcome a local town bully in order to help their ill mother. The opera has been performed thousands of times around the world as a way to connect today’s younger generations with survivors of the Holocaust and to strengthen the world’s watch against oppression and discrimination. These shows will be performed by a cast of local Sydney school children, mentored by young adult opera students and emerging professional musicians.
