Produced by the Cincinnati Chamber Opera, The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education is proud to present this local production of operas composed or performed in the Theresienstadt Ghetto.

When the children in the Prague Jewish orphanage were sent to Theresienstadt ghetto, few things gave them hope....except for music. They performed the opera Brundibar over 55 times in the ghetto. 

Composer Viktor Ulmann was in Theresienstadt when he wrote the opera Emperor of Atlantis, a satire on Hitler. Ulmann, and many others in Theresienstadt, used their art to keep a shred of their humanity, to resist the Nazi oppression, and create a world where good prevails evil.

Please join us for performances of the children operas Brundibar and Emperor of Atlantis to remember the lives of those children, women and men, and the art they created.

There will be three opportunities to see these powerful performances:
Thursday, October 23rd 7:30 pm at the Mayerson JCC
Saturday, October 25th 7:30 pm at Jarson-Kaplan Theater
Sunday, October 26th 2:00pm at Jarson-Kaplan Theater
Sunday performance will feature a Q&A with the cast of the operas.
