Return of the King of Atlantis

253

No, it is not a B-movie title. On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Opera Moderne returns to Bohemian Hall to present Viktor Ullmann’s Der Kaiser von Atlantis. Produced by the company last year (we wrote about it here), this haunting opera, created in the Theresienstadt concentration camp during the Second World War, received rave reviews for its all too short run. The run is still too short, but catch this gripping and historically significant piece if you can.
