WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

92nd Street Y presents Brundibar, a performance and discussion with Tony Kushner, Maurice Sendak, & The Young People's Chorus of New York City. Playwright Tony Kushner and illustrator Maurice Sendak share the sad and inspiring history of Brundibar, an opera by the Czech-Jewish composer Hans Krása. This children's opera, a parable of good conquering evil, was performed 55 times by the children of the Nazi concentration camp Terezin. Sendak and Kushner have collaborated on a new illustrated book based on the opera, to be published November 1.
