Author(s): &

The opera is based on the Holocaust experiences of the husband of the author of the libretto who, with his younger brother, was hidden from the Nazis on an estate just outside Paris. In the opera, the Jewish boy, David Cohen, is hidden by a Gentile family in a Normandy town the Nazis eventually occupy, and, as liberation becomes imminent, there is greater danger that the child will be discovered.
