(1899 - 1944)

Born in Prague into an assimilated Jewish family, Hans Krása studied with Zemlinsky, with whom he worked as a choral repetiteur in Prague and at the Kroll Opera in Berlin, eventually establishing himself in the former city. In 1942 he was deported to Theresienstadt and two years later killed in Auschwitz.

Stage, Vocal and Instrumental Music

Krása’s children’s opera Brundibár (‘Bumble-bee’), a tale about the triumph of good over evil, was staged both in Prague and, in a version rescored by the composer, in Theresienstadt.
