The Sydney Brundibár Project

The children’s opera Brundibár was the most popular cultural activity and a powerful symbol of hope when performed by the Jewish people imprisoned in the Terezín Ghetto (Theresienstadt), in Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia. Brundibár tells the story of a brother and sister who overcome a local town bully in order to help their ill mother. Composed in 1938, the score was smuggled into the ghetto and performed 55 times by the inmates, for the inmates. Find out more about the story here.

The Sydney Brundibár Project is a collaboration between academic and musician Dr Joseph Toltz, the Sydney Jewish Museum and start-up chamber opera company Opera Prometheus. This production of Brundibár will be an innovative way to engage Sydney school students as both performers and audience members in a cultural activity, providing them with a high level artistic and educational experience that will also enhance their understanding of the Holocaust.
