THE KAISER OF ATLANTIS

Argentina, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Spain 2022 – Director: Sebastián Alfie – Original language: Czech, English, Spanish – Subtitles: English, Spanish

Death takes a holiday. People can no longer die. But then the Hitler/Kaiser perishes. Together with the conductor Kerry Woodward, who is the custodian of this exceptional musical score, Sebastián Alfie reconstructs the complex and touching story of a chamber opera created amid inhumanity, which is compellingly topical. Simon Hauck
