Curtis Institute of Music _The Emperor of Atlantis by Viktor Ullmann

Philadelphia, PA
United States

The power struggle between a deluded, warring emperor and Death itself wreaks havoc on humanity-until one of them gains the upper hand-in Viktor Ullmann's Der Kaiser von Atlantis. This extraordinary one-act fable, created in Theresienstadt, a Nazi concentration camp near Prague, is paired with the Bach cantata Ich habe genug. A double bill of intimate, distilled drama staged in the black-box Curtis Opera Studio.
