Orchestra Miami will present a very special performance of a very special opera – Brundibár – a children’s opera that premiered during World War II, and became both a symbol of hope and resistance and a Nazi propaganda tool. It was performed 55 times in the Theresienstadt concentration camp, and used as propaganda by the Nazis to show how well the prisoners were being treated in the camp. A classic story of good versus evil, this beautiful piece is a symbol of hope and the triumph of the human spirit.
