Before his death at Auschwitz, Ullmann gave the score to a colleague, and the opera remained unperformed until 1975. A haunting allegory about redemption despite the worst of humanity, this new production of The Kaiser of Atlantis features The Atlanta Opera Company Players in a chilling satire built for our time.
