BANGKOK — Selections from the diary of a young victim of the Holocaust will come to life in a one woman show in Bangkok.

Opera Siam, with support from the Israeli and German embassies, will bring “The Diary of Anne Frank” to Bangkok as part of a four day festival of Russian composers at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre later this month.

The opera was written by the late Russian composer Grigori Frid, who was inspired by reading Anne Frank’s diary and penned his operatic tribute in 1969. It was first performed in 1972 in Moscow.

This reminded me of a story from many years ago when Pia Zadora was playing Anne on stage in London. In the audience were Noel Coward, Vivien Leigh and others. When the gestapo turned up at the house they all yelled out "she's in the attic". Must have been a lot of boozy fun.

I wonder if they adopt the tradition of the star wars movies where they reserve the front rows for enthusiasts who dress up in outfits matching the theme. Seems to be no problem here:

Exploitation of the sad events penned down by an unfortunate young girl.

Bad taste.
