Brundibár was originally performed by children in the Nazi concentration camp Terezin, and served as an allegory for resistance. More recently, the opera was made famous by playwright Tony Kushner (Angels in America) and illustrator Maurice Sendak (Where the Wild Things Are). Brundibár, as well as its history, testifies to the presence of hope in the darkest of times and the value of a single small act of resistance.
