Defiant Requiem

Description
Defiant Requiem: Verdi at Terezín, a profoundly moving multimedia concert-drama, combines the magnificent music of Verdi with video testimonials and narration, to tell the story of the courageous Jewish prisoners in the Theresienstadt Concentration Camp (Terezín) who performed the celebrated Verdi Requiem while experiencing the depths of human degradation. With only a smuggled score, they performed the famous oratorio sixteen times, including one 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." This performance features conductor Murry Sidlin, actors John Rubinstein & David Prather, soprano Aga Mikolaj, mezzo-soprano Ann McMahon Quintero, tenor Edgaras Montvidas, bass-baritone Nathan Stark, the Pacific Symphony and Pacific Chorale. Proceeds to benefit Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust.
