I would like to say a few words about Opera in Terezin. I was there. There were concert ( with piano ) performances of many standard operas ( The Bartered Bride, The Kiss, Marriage of Figaro etc), but also experimental operas and a very popular children opera: Brundibar.. For those living in Toronto, it may interest you, that the children opera Brundibar ( composer H. Krasa ) will be repeated in November ( after a very successful run of last year ). Brundibar was performed more than fifty times in Terezin ( 1943 and 1944 ) and was the most enduring theatrical success of Terezin. Another opera, composed, but never produced in Terezin is called The Emperor of Atlantis ( composer Victor Ullman.and this will be performed by the Canadian Opera Company during the second half of November. Does any one wish to know more? Please write to me John Freund.
