A moving, bittersweet children's opera as performed in
Theresienstadt Concentration Camp in 1942. Over 50 performances of this poignant production were performed in the ghetto, all by children internees. This performance echoes those actual productions, with one of Canada's finest children's choirs.
A Special Project of the Saskatchewan Music Educators Association (SMEA), the opera is produced by
Rita McLeod in cooperation with
Phoebe Voigts and the Saskatoon Children's Choir, Tibor Feheregyhazi (Director, Persephone Theatre) and Monte Keene Pishny Floyd. Honorary Patrons of the production in Saskatchewan were Her Honour the
Honourable Dr. Lynda Haverstock, Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan, and Dr. Dagmar
Lieblová, Chairperson of the Terezín Initiative in Prague, Czech Republic.
In May 2005, there were seven performances in Saskatoon and two in Regina.
In June 2006, the Saskatoon Children's Choir will be performing Brundibar in Winnipeg.
