Unofficial word out of Vienna today that to mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day on January 25th, a new opera focusing on the murders of children by the Nazi regime will premiere–in Austria’s Parliament. The work, by composer Peter Androsch, takes place in a Viennese psychiatric ward. There’s been no formal announcement of the project, as of yet, but it certainly sounds both sobering and potentially quite powerful. Here’s more from George Jahn of the Associated Press.
