Librettist:Jeremy Schonfeld
Synopsis
IRON & COAL is a powerful and personal rock-opera by critically acclaimed composer and performer Jeremy Schonfeld. Taking inspiration from his father Gustav’s memoir “Absence of Closure,” Schonfeld traces his father’s attempts to create a life out of the ashes having spent a year in Auschwitz in 1944-45 at the age of ten. Having been one of the few survivors along with his family, Gustav was saved because of his father’s work as a doctor. Schonfeld weaves memories of his own early childhood and his own coming to terms with the death of his father Gustav and with the birth of his own son. The ghosts of a distant and vanished world, both of horror and the iron will to survive, mix with the present in this truly remarkable concept album that will now be brought to life on stage using animation, projections, a band, youth chorus, and youth orchestra to celebrate the indomitable spirit of our ancestors and the legacy we carry with us.
