Annelies is the first adaptation of the diary of Anne Frank into a large-scale choral work.
It brings to life the diary written by Annelies Marie Frank between 1942 and 1944,
when she and her family hid in the back of an Amsterdam warehouse.
From the windows, Anne looked up to the beauty of the sky,
and downwards to the brutality meted out by the Nazis.
The contrasting sights inspired some of the most profound and memorable thoughts
in an extraordinary diary, translated here into a libretto by Melanie Challenger.
