Holocaust Survivor Performs in River Ridge Opera

From the St. Paul Pioneer Press, 2/12/2010:

By Maricella Miranda

Theresa Bulger's role in her high school's opera links her to Holocaust survivor Ela Weissberger.

Bulger, 18, and Weissberger, 79, both have played the leading role of a cat in the Jewish children's opera "Brundibár." Weissberger performed it at a concentration camp in the former Czechoslovakia.

"For a lot of (children), it was the last thing they ever did," Bulger said.

The two met Thursday, when the 12th-grader and other choir students from Trinity School at River Ridge in Eagan performed the opera for the first time.

Weissberger, of New York, was in the audience and spoke after the show, held at the Beth Immanuel Sabbath Fellowship in Hudson, Wis. Finish the story on TwinCities.com.
