Join Atlanta favorite Lois Reitzes, host of WABE’s City Lights, in conversation with The Atlanta Opera’s General & Artistic Director, Tomer Zvulun as they discuss the Opera’s upcoming production of The Kaiser of Atlantis.

A partnership between The Breman Museum and The Atlanta Opera, the free virtual discussion will focus on Viktor Ullmann’s critically acclaimed chamber opera, which was written in 1943 in the Theresienstadt concentration camp. Before his death at Auschwitz, Ullmann gave the score to a colleague, and the opera remained unperformed until 1975.

The Opera will perform this work in its entirety in a new production opening on October 23rd.

    In support of the Breman Museum’s mission to “Connect people to Jewish history, culture, and arts,” the newest exhibition, A Jazz Memoir: Photography by Herb Snitzer features photography documenting America’s jazz scene, focusing on the 1957–1964, of his over fifty-year career. For most of that time, Herb was the photography editor for Metronome, the primary magazine devoted to jazz. Images of Louis Armstrong, Nina Simone, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Duke Ellington, John Coltrane, Count Basie and many others are showcased in the exhibit. Additional works reveal his desire to use photography to effect social change and his belief that “Injustice for one is injustice for all.” A Jazz Memoir also speaks to the links that connect Jews, jazz and the African American community.
