Notes & Reviews:

'Brandibar' is part of an inspiring human legacy. Hans Krasa's beautiful children's opera, performed 55 times at the Terezin concentration camp, stands as a memorial to its original performers, the child inmates of Terezin. Tony Kushner's acclaimed new English libretto, which receives its world premier recording here, brings a modern vibrancy to 'Brundibar's story about the triumph of good over evil, and the power of friendship to change the world. Contemporary American composer Lori Laitman's powerful song cycle 'I Never Saw Another Butterfly' captures the voices of six extraordinary poems by Terezin's child prisoners.
