City Center Live: Anne Frank and Mirabai, Women’s Spiritual Legacy in Opera


This event will be held at Lenexa City Center Community Forum, Lenexa City Hall 17101 W. 87th St. Pkwy., Lenexa, KS 66219.

This interfaith opera recital is a musical and spiritual journey featuring two women who changed the world. Anne Frank was a 15-year-old Jewish girl whose poignant and insightful diaries survived the European Holocaust. Mirabai was a Hindu in 16thcentury India who, as legend has it, refused to throw herself on her husband’s funeral pyre. She left her family and devoted herself to writing ecstatic poetry to Krishna.

City Center Live is a partnership between Johnson County Library and the Lenexa Arts Council.
