Anne Frank opera premieres in France

The French premiere of Grigori Frid’s opera on the life and death of Anne Frank will be presented tonight to an audience of schoolchildren. The black-tie premiere is tomorrow. They’ve got their priorities right at Opéra Metz.

    I do hope that they bring this Opera to Melbourne, Australia.

  3. I have conducted the work – in the chamber version (9 musicians) – 27 times by now, in New York, and at the Cleveland Opera. It has been my experience that it made quite an impression on young people. They usually have studied the diary in school, and Frid’s sometimes spiky language really speaks to them.
