Opera Carnivale - Hitler's Daughter: The Opera

The beloved Australian children’s book reimagined.

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. She has escaped the war and is 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. 

Director: Dr Narelle Yeo
Composer: Lachlan Massey
