Brundibár: A Musical Tale is a contemporary staging of a children’s opera written by Hans Krása just prior to the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia. Brundibár‘s heroes–the children Aninku and Pepicek–overcome their oppressor, the brash and unmusical organ grinder Brundibár, by rallying the children of the town to sing loudly and beautifully. This simple narrative reminds us that we cannot remain neutral in the face of oppression; we can achieve the seemingly impossible by working together toward common goals.
Help Us Make the Seemingly Impossible, Possible
With YOUR HELP we can achieve the very ambitious goal of bringing Brundibár: A Musical Tale to Burlington’s City Hall in March, 2016.
Rather than simply staging a traditional production in a conventional theater, we are collaborating with In Tandem Arts to produce Brundibár as a community-driven effort that can involve and engage people on many different levels.
But we need your support to bring all the pieces together.
