The Diary of Anne Frank (monodrama)

SUN 25 NOV | SONIC LAB | DOORS 2.45PM, £12 (£8 conc.) BOOK HERE

Emotionally gripping and challenging are but a few words used to describe the Russian Composer Grigory Frid’s mono drama ‘The Diary of Anne Frank’.

Vivid and insightful , this dramatic work recreates the world of 13 year-old Anne Frank in hiding, living in hope, longing for normality for herself and her family.

This one women opera will be sung by Northern Irish Soprano Rebekah Coffey, who makes her return to her operatic roots. Known for her convincing operatic roles, Rebekah will sing the role of Anne, in English , in this concert performance. The score will be brought to life by a vibrant Trio Ensemble.

The Diary of Anne Frank has moved readers all over the world and continues to do so as a poignant reminder of the cruelty and suffering of the millions persecuted during the Holocaust.

“‘Ach, ich fühl’s’ requires more inwardness and intensity – Her upper register surges and expands impressively here, vividly communicating the character’s emotional desolation.” Terry Blain, Ulster Orchestra, Arias in Advent

The Diary of Anne Frank by Griogory Frid

Rebekah is delighted to announce her success in the ACES awards from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland. Returning to the concert platform last year following the birth of her two little boys, Rebekah is now keen to kick start her Operatic career again. With the support of her mentor Brian Carson of Moving On Music and the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Rebekah will be working on the one women opera by Grigory Frid, “The Diary of Anne Frank”.
Details will evolve over the next 4-6 months with a concert performance planned for November 2018. This is a wonderful piece of operatic work based on Anne Frank’s diary which detailed her harrowing experience in hiding from 1942- 1944. This will be an emotional and dramatic role for Rebekah to play and she is really looking forward to working on the project.
