Christ lag in Todes Banden / The Emperor of Atlantis: Christ lag / Emperor Atlantis
Friday 5 October 2012, 8.00pm
Linbury Studio Theatre
At 7.30pm, there will be a performance of ‘Towards an Unknown Port’, which is a ten-minute song cycle written by Helen Chadwick, and a free talk on art and life in the Terezin concentration camp. After a short break, the performances of ‘Christ lag in Todes Banden’ / ‘The Emperor of Atlantis’ will start. Your ticket entitles you to attend both parts of the evening; however, you may attend only ‘Christ lag in Todes Banden’ / ‘The Emperor of Atlantis’ from 8.15pm if you would prefer.
James Conway presents a powerful production of this daring political satire. It was created when Viktor Ullman and Peter Kien were imprisoned in a concentration camp during World War II.
|Composer||Johann Sebastian Bach|
