“Brundibár,” Performed by The Young People’s Chorus of New York City

Hosted By: The Museum of Jewish Heritage-- A Living Memorial to the Holocaust

In honor of Holocaust Remembrance Day, The Young People’s Chorus of New York City (YPC) will perform the historic and poignant operetta “Brundibár,” accompanied by a live orchestra, directed by Eric Einhorn of On Site Opera, with costumes by Beth Goldenberg.

“Brundibár,” is a children’s opera by Jewish Czech composer Hans Krása with a libretto by Adolf Hoffmeister. It was regularly performed by the children of the Theresienstadt concentration camp in occupied Czechoslovakia in 1943. The story of the opera weaves in popular fairy tales as two children overcome the organ grinder Brundibár to sing in their town square and help their ill mother.

Following “Brundibár,” YPC choristers will perform musical selections by Leonard Cohen, Simon & Garfunkel, Leonard Bernstein, and more.
