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.
Programs in Peak Performances’ 2019-20 season are made possible in part by funds from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
