“Defiant Requiem”
January 27, 2014 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Location Albert and Ethel Herzstein Theater
This 2012 film tells the story of a cultural and spiritual resistance inside the Terezin camp. Led by imprisoned conductor Rafael Schächter, the inmates of Terezin fought back... with art and music. This creative rebellion reaches its peak when Schächter teaches a choir of 150 inmates one of the world's most difficult and powerful choral works, Verdi's “Requiem,” re-imagined as a condemnation of the Nazis. The choir would ultimately confront the Nazis face to face and sing to them what they dare not say. For more than 10 years, conductor Murry Sidlin dreamed of bringing the “Requiem” back to Terezin. Now, through soaring concert footage, powerful survivor recollections, cinematic dramatizations and evocative animation, “Defiant Requiem” brings the incredible story of this artistic uprising to life. This film is being presented at Holocaust Museum Houston in conjunction with the Houston Grand Opera’s presentation of the Holocaust opera “The Passenger.” Admission is free, but seating is limited, and advance registration is required.
