Brundibar is an opera for children performed by children. Written in 1939 by Jewish/Czech composer, Hans Krasa, from within concentration camp, Theresienstadt. It is a rich piece of history told through the eyes of brother and sister, Annika and Pepicek as they journey into town to buy milk for their sick mother. Along the way they encounter the mean organ-grinder Brundibar. They make friends with a cat, dog and sparrow, who help them gather the children of the village to help them defeat the tyrant.
