Opera Theatre of Saint Louis says
Moderated by General Director Timothy O'Leary, the panel explores two operas which changed our perspectives on history: Handel’s treatment of the Crusader King Richard in Richard the Lionheart and Hans Krása’s Brundibár, a children’s opera used as Nazi propaganda.

The panel includes Richard the Lionheart director Lee Blakeley, countertenor Tim Mead, and curator and director of education for the Holocaust Museum and Learning Center of St. Louis Dan Reich.

Audience members are encouraged to bring their own lunch to the event, which is free and begins at 12:00 p.m.

The panel is co-presented by Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, the Missouri History Museum, and Arts and Faith St. Louis.

The event marks OTSL’s third annual collaboration with the Missouri History Museum for a special panel discussion. Previously, the two organizations presented a screening of Ring of Fire in conjunction with OTSL’s 2013 world premiere of Champion and a panel discussion titled Following in the Footsteps of Women of Faith in conjunction with OTSL’s 2014 production of Dialogues of the Carmelites.
