Spertus Institute presents the Chicago Premiere of Brundibar Revisited in observance of Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day). Brundibar is selected for a Berlin-based theater group of young people who live on the fringes of society. As they prepare for their performance, members travel to Theresienstadt to learn about the extreme conditions under which the opera debuted, accompanied by the charismatic Greta Klingsberg who performed in the original play more than 50 times.
