TheSpace @ Venue 45, Jeffries Street, Edinburgh


The Edinburgh premiere of Grigori Frid's 1968 mono-opera, based on Anne Frank's famous and moving diary. Fusing lyrical and emotive melodies with avant-garde, Frid's music provides an intimate and intense insight into the profound thoughts of this truly astonishing young woman. A young woman whose refusal to give up hope in the face of the Holocaust keeps inspiring people around the world, and whose story has become a memorial for humanity itself.
