In an intimate performance the DSO brings Ludmilla, an opera by Erich Ziegler (score) and Willy Rosen (libretto), to Dallas. The opera was originally performed for the Schutzstaffel in 1944 by the Gruppe Bühne (cabaret artists imprisoned at Westerbork Concentration Camp in the Netherlands) — two months later, all forms of entertainment were banned. This moving production weaves together the comedy created for the SS’s entertainment with memories drawn from prisoners at Westerbork that were ultimately murdered in Auschwitz.
