WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In this moving opera, Anne Frank sings of her hopes, fears, and dreams during the two years she spent hiding from the Nazis in an Amsterdam attic. Stage Director and Designer Mitisek interweaves scenes from Anne's Diary with the memories of Laura Hillman who was 16 in 1942 when she and her family were sent to a deportation camp. Laura tells of finding love in the Holocaust and her survival as one of the 1,100 Jews on Schindler's List. A 9-piece orchestra accompanies soprano Ani Maldjian who reprises her critically acclaimed role as Anne Frank. Anne and Laura's stories create a bridge from the past to the present reminding us of a dark part of history and a lesson which should never be forgotten. Sung and spoken in English.
