On April 29, 2011, the IPO commemorated Holocaust Remembrance Day with a special concert featuring the celebrated children’s opera, Brundibar.
The opera was written in 1939 by composer Hans Krasa (who was killed a few years later) and was performed in the Teresienstadt Ghetto by a children’s choir. The opera became a symbol of the fight by the residents of the ghetto and their hope for survival and victory over the Nazis.
The concert consisted of a fully-staged production of the opera conducted by Naomi Faran and presented by Yossi Shiffman, with the participation of 70 singers from the Israeli Moran choir and the Czech PUERI GAUDENTES choir, and an 11-member orchestra.
