About this show

The opera is inspired by the compelling, true story of Simon Gronowski, who was pushed from a train bound for Auschwitz by his mother in 1943. Yet the story neither begins nor ends there. The narrative also draws on various accounts of those who have experienced refugee and prisoner status, including events of 2016; 'The Jungle' in Calais, the mass arrival of Syrian refugees into Europe, and the scenes from the train stations in Budapest as refugees were trapped whilst trying to board trains.

+ School children and University students.
