“Brundibár” was a children’s opera, written in 1938 by Czech composer Hans Krasa, and performed 55 times between 1943 and 1944 in the concentration camp Theresienstadt in Czechoslovakia. This camp was propagandized by the Nazis as a model ghetto. In 2011, inSIGHT partnered with the Kravis Center’s S*T*A*R* Series for Students, the Palm Beach Opera and Lynn University Conservatory to produce a performance of “Brundibár” for over 2000 middle school students as well as to the greater Palm Beach Community.
Ela Weissberger, who played “Cat” in all fifty-five performances in Theresienstadt was there to speak to students and the audience about her experiences.
