Sunday, February 26 • 2 PM • Eskenazi Art Museum
The Eskenazi Museum of Art is partnering with the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music in anticipation of the world premiere of the opera Anne Frank.
Following the tour, we’ll move to the Martin Commons on the museum’s second floor, where Dr. McComas, Shulamit Ran and Arthur Fagen, composer and conductor of Anne Frank, will engage in a moderated discussion on the ways in which the Holocaust has been interpreted and presented in the visual and performing arts. This dialogue will be followed by an excerpt from Anne Frank, performed by members of the cast.
