The story of Anne Frank, one of Time Magazine's “100 Most Important People of the 20th century,” will be brought to the stage in a visually ground-breaking performance fusing Opera and Animation, opening this week. In the role of Anne Frank, Kate Fruchterman brings to life the optimistic, heartening, and timeless words excerpted from Anne's diary in English translation. Animation designer and Vermont Studio Center fellowship winner Yuriko Katori’s 2000 animations illustrate the history of WWII, Anne’s life, hiding place, family and friends. Internationally experienced director Anna Etsuko Tsuri has united the contemporary music of Russian composer, Grigory Frid, with visual art into a vivid theatrical experience. This is more than opera, it is a unique composite performance piece of animation, music and literature. Everyone including children over the age of 6 will enjoy this unforgettable performance!
