ADL Presents Defiant Requiem: Verdi at Terezin

Defiant Requiem: Verdi at Terezín tells the story of courageous Jewish prisoners in the Theresienstadt Concentration Camp during World War II who learned Verdi’s Requiem Mass by rote and then performed this compelling work 16 times as a statement of defiance and resistance, answering the worst of mankind with the best of mankind.

The concert/drama features a full performance of The Requiem with actors, video testimony with surviving members of the choir, and original Nazi propaganda film footage. The performance is powerful, dramatic and inspirational, with a contemporary message of hope, and will be conducted by Maestro Murry Sidlin, who created this deeply moving multi-media production.
