Terezin survivor Martin Stern to give talk for ETO
9th November 2012
We are delighted that Terezín survivor Martin Stern will give the pre-show talk before our semi-staged performance of The Emperor of Atlantis at Malvern Priory on Wednesday 14th November.
A regular speaker about his Terezín experiences, and the psychology of genocide, Martin was born in the Netherlands in 1938, and was cared for by a Dutch couple in occupied Amsterdam close to the Anne Frank House for most of two years.
He was arrested at pre-school and with his one year old sister Erica sent to Westerbork camp in the Netherlands and then the Terezín ghetto, where Viktor Ullmann composed The Emperor of Atlantis.
Martin speaks as part of ETO’s free pre-show events for The Emperor of Atlantis, following the performance of the new song cycle Towards an Unknown Port at 7.30pm by Malvern St James school and singers from the Malvern Priory Choirs.
The main performance of The Emperor of Atlantis starts at 8.15pm. Tickets cost £20 or £15 when bought with a ticket to ETO’s Albert Herring on Tuesday 13th November.
Tickets are available from 01684 89 22 77 or www.malvern-theatres.co.uk.
