DEFIANT REQUIEM Comes to Tacoma Armory

DEFIANT REQUIEM Comes to Tacoma Armory

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." Tickets here. This concert is approximately 115 minutes with no intermission.
