Opera Carnivale – Hitler’s Daughter: The Opera

Sat 11 Apr

The beloved Australian children’s book reimagined.

Based on the book Hitler’s Daughter by Jackie French
By arrangement with Jackie French and Harper Collins Australia
Music by Lachlan Massey
Libretto by Narelle Yeo and Lachlan Massey

Young composer Lachlan Massey has transformed ‘Hitler’s Daughter’, the acclaimed children’s book by Jackie French, into a beautiful new one-act opera.

The beloved book tells the story of a group of kids who tell stories while waiting for the bus each day. One day Anna invents the story of Heidi, Hitler’s secret daughter. She has escaped the war and exiled in Australia. The story is told with pathos and a lightness of touch, along with poignant insights into a child’s eye view of history.

‘Hitler’s Daughter’ remains on school reading lists throughout Australia, and this new opera is a vibrant, musical retelling.

Hitler’s Daughter: The Opera is a collaboration between the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Opera Carnivalé and the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music.
