The profound impact that Rebecca Greenstein's fledgling Opera Moderne has already made on the local music scene is sure to grow with this new production of an opera composed by Viktor Ullman in the Theresienstadt internment camp in 1943. A tunefully macabre allegory in which Death takes a holiday, the opera was rehearsed the following year and instantly banned by the Nazis; Ullman and his librettist perished soon after at Auschwitz. Here, in a hotly demanded encore run, Ransom Wilson conducts new-music ensemble Le Train Bleu in a staging that also features Sugar Foot Mafia Dance Company.
