The Brundibár performance is a part of the Věčná naděje music festival
of the Terezín composers. This event is supported by Embassy of the Federal
Republic of Germany Prague.
Brundibár is an opera written for children. No more than forty minutes long,
it was composed in 1938 by Hans Krása, with lyrics by Adolf Hoffmeister, as an
entry for a children’s opera competition. It received its premiere in
German-occupied Prague and was performed by children at the Jewish Orphanage in
Brundibár had one additional performance in the Hagibor building before the
mass transports of Bohemian and Moravian Jews to Terezín began in 1942. In
July 1943, the score of Brundibár was smuggled into camp, where it was
re-orchestrated by Krása for the various instrumentalists who were available to
play at that time. The premiere of the Terezín version took place on
23 September 1943 in the hall of the Magdeburg barracks.
