"The Diary of Anne Frank" («Дневник Анны Франк») is a monodrama for soprano, first performed in 1972. The music and libretto are by Russian composer Grigory Frid, who selected text from the diary of 13-years-old Anne Frank, who was in hiding with her family in a house in Amsterdam from July 1942 until their arrest in August 1944. In 21 brief scenes, she describes the people she sees, her different moods, and her emotions. In summer 2012, Operabase listed Grigory Frid's "The Diary of Anne Frank" as the most frequently staged lyric work by a living composer over the previous five years. The opera lasts one hour with no intermission.
