This Weekend: Emperor from Atlantis at Bohemian National Hall

Viktor Ullmann’s Der Kaiser von Atlantis was composed in 1943 while he was a prisoner in the Theresienstadt concentration camp. It was produced in the camp in 1944; Ullmann and his librettist, fellow prisoner Peter Kien, were murdered later that year in Auschwitz.

This weekend, Opera Moderne is reviving Emperor From Atlantis. This stirring work serves as a reminder that the Holocaust not only destroyed countless lives, but deprived the world of many fine creative works that could have been created by the artists among those murdered.
