The Theresienstadt Opera Project presents two operas from the Holocaust era

  Opera performed by Jewish children held in a concentration camp during World War II. It is almost impossible to imagine such beauty amid such horror. But it did exist. And now The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education and the Cincinnati Chamber Opera present two children'?s operas that were composed or performed by Jews during the Holocaust, in The Theresienstadt Opera Project.

Here to discuss the history of the operas, and the upcoming performances, are Sarah L. Weiss, executive director for The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education; Autumn West, Cincinnati Chamber Opera co-founder and artistic director; and Yael Front, opera conductor.
