Free opera tickets for teens

High-schoolers interested in attending Music of Remembrance’s Nov. 16 or 18 presentation of the Viktor Ullmann opera “Emperor of Atlantis” are in luck: MOR is offering free admission to the first 100 high school students who sign up here. Ullmann composed the opera while imprisoned at the Terezin (Theresienstadt) concentration camp near Prague, where many notable musicians, artists and writers were sent. Ullmann (as was his librettist, Peter Kien, and many, many others) was deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau in 1944 and killed in the gas chambers. While most of his pre-war work disappeared, many of the pieces he composed at Terezin have survived, and “Emperor” has been staged in several countries since the 1970s.
