Spanning six centuries and the breadth of Europe, saved from destruction by people of many faiths—the history of the Sarajevo Haggadah is one that is as miraculous as the Biblical one that lies within it. Accordionist and composer Merima Ključo returns to Yellow Barn with video artist Bart Woodstrup and pianist Seth Knopp to create The Sarajevo Haggadah: Music of the Book, a new work that illuminates a tale of heroism in the face of violence.
