The cast of Brundibar in Theresienstadt

Brundibar, a children's opera performed underground 55 times at Czechoslovakian concentration camp Theresienstadt, is showing at the Michigan Opera Theatre this weekend. Ela Stein Weissberger performed in each of these as the cat, and she is in studio to share her experiences with us.

"When my friends were taken to Auschwitz, I thought this little opera died with them.", said Weissenberger.

But seeing this opera performed by children across the nation is an experience she calls, "uplifting."

Listen to her compelling story.
