After Eden Productions presents Brundibar and the Music of Terezin

This event has finished Took place on: Sunday, 10th Nov 2019

With the existing prisons gradually filling up as a result of the Nazi terror, a prison camp was set up in the Fortress of TerezĂ­n in 1940.

More than 150,000 Jews were sent to Terezin including writers, artists, musicians, composers and educationalists. During their incarceration they held concerts and cabarets, wrote and performed music and operas and even set up a school.

Learn about the story of Terezin through a short screening of the documentary The Music of Terezin, followed by an arresting Q&A with its director Simon Broughton and Terezin survivor Zdenka Fantlova.

Following the screening, you will have a remarkable opportunity to see the very opera that was staged 55 times in Terezin: Brundibar, a musically beautiful, dramatically memorable act of artistic and cultural defiance. Written by Hans Krasa for a cast of children, the opera in this incarnation will be performed at the Jewish Museum by Kentish Town Primary School, and has been staged to conclude an eight-week After Eden education project.

Cost: £8.50
