MSU Opera

with the MSU Symphony Orchestra

Jeffrey Gall, Director
Nicholas DeMaison, conductor

What moral authority commands the decision to take a human life? MSU Opera explores Puccini’s answer in his favorite one-act opera Suor Angelica, and a radically different perspective by Viktor Ullmann in his rarely performed one-act Die Kaiser von Atlantis, composed in the Nazi ghetto of Theresienstadt. Fully staged and performed in Italian and German with English subtitles.
