RETURN ENGAGEMENT
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. After sold-out performances in Putney, Boston, and Dallas, accordionist and composer Merima Ključo returns to Yellow Barn with pianist Seth Knopp to reprise The Sarajevo Haggadah: Music of the Book, a new work that illuminates a tale of heroism in the face of violence through music and animation.
