    Boston Lyric Opera - Signature Series @ the MFA

    The Emperor of Atlantis, or Death Quits
    “Rehearsal at Theresienstadt, 1944”
    Rising out of the very depths and horrifying moral chaos of World War II, The Emperor of Atlantis, or Death Quits is both a biting meditation on the fragility and brutality of existence and a wry and ironic celebration of life's purposes. A look at the tragic performance history of the opera and its subsequent reverberations—illustrated by photographs, some of the compelling visual art created at the camp, and music from the opera itself, other compositions of Ullmann and an excerpt from Richard Beaudoin's commissioned piece to be performed with Emperor. He will be joined by members of the BLO creative team and cast members.
