Based on true events, Brundibár was originally performed by children in the Theresienstadt concentration camp in occupied Czechoslovakia, after composer Hans Krasa was able to reconstruct the score from memory and the few pieces he had been able to smuggle in after he was arrested and sent there. Krasa and all of the performers were later sent to Auschwitz and murdered in the gas chambers.
In Brundibár, sister Aninka and brother Pepíček attempt to get milk for their ill mother. They sing in the marketplace to raise the needed money, but the evil organ grinder Brundibár chases them away. With the help of a fearless sparrow, keen cat, wise dog, and the children of the town, they are able to chase Brundibár away and aid their mother.
Brundibar was performed at Boston Conservatory at Berklee and at the Beth El Temple Center in Belmont, Massachusetts. The piece was chosen to illustrate art as a form of protest, and that when banded together, a group of people can overcome great obstacles. Even decades later, its message still resonates today.
