Indiana University to World Premiere ‘Anne Frank’

“As a son of Holocaust survivors, part of my mission as a musician has been, whenever it was in my power, to create events that reminded us of the Holocaust,” Fagen said in an official press statement issued by the University. “It’s something that I hope to continue to do as long as I’m working. I think of all the events that I’ve been involved with, in some ways, this is the biggest one.”

Conductor Arthur Fagen shares thoughts on the world premiere of the opera "Anne Frank."
