DEFIANT REQUIEM: VERDI AT TEREZÍN

 

 

 

Defiant Requiem: Verdi at Terezín is a unique and profoundly moving multimedia concert-drama featuring a full performance of Giuseppe Verdi’s Requiem Mass. It tells the story of the courageous Jewish prisoners in the Theresienstadt concentration camp (Terezín) who performed the monumental Verdi Requiem while experiencing the depths of human degradation. With only a single smuggled score they performed the famous oratorio 16 times, including a final, infamous performance before senior SS officials from Berlin and an International Red Cross delegation. Conductor Rafael Schächter told the choir, “We will sing to the Nazis what we cannot say to them.”

Best concert seats are available as part of VIP ticket packages, which include admission to a pre-concert VIP cocktail reception featuring a conversation with Rabbi David Wolpe and Ambassador Stuart E. Eizenstat, board chair of The Defiant Requiem Foundation, and a post-concert dessert reception.
