Libretto by Adolf Hoffmeister
New English version by Tony Kushner
Conceived and Designed by Maurice Sendak
Originally performed by youth living in the Theresienstadt concentration camp, Brundibár tells of two children, Aninka and Pepícek, who must procure milk for their sick mother. This short opera has a story and music that are accessible enough for a child audience, but layered and textured with meaning from its historical origins, making it a significant experience for an adult audience as well.
