***** FANTASTIC” The Herald

The Diary of Anne Frank

Grigori Frid (1968)

11 - 27 August 2016 (not Sundays) 15:10

TheSpace @ Venue 45, Jeffries Street, Edinburgh

After last year's tremendously successful Orpheus and Eurydice, ‘Superb’ **** (Scotsman), ‘First class’ **** (ThreeWeeks), About Turn is honoured to present 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 avantgarde, 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.
