St George's Bristol presents


A Children’s Opera by Hans Krása

This event has passed.

Aninku and Pepíček are trying to make some money to help their sick mum. Busking in the town square – that’s the way to do it! However, they’ve got a problem: Brundibár, the local organ grinder, whose musical spell forces the villagers to pay all their money to him.

With the help of some friends: a wise dog, brave sparrow, and a determined cat, can Aninku and Pepíček release the village from Brundibár’s evil magic? Come along to find out!

This powerful staging of Hans Krása’s children’s opera is performed by young people from across Bristol, and shows how even if you feel small and powerless, determination and friendship will see you through, and that your voice will be heard.

Running time approx. 40 minutes, straight through with no interval
