In a concentration camp in 1944, an extraordinary opera was created. Though faced with transportation, Viktor Ullmann and his fellow artists made a stylish comedy in which Death, appalled by mass killing, goes on strike. Then there is love and longing - until Emperor Overall agrees to die himself. This short masterpiece sings of humanity - and though its first performance was banned and its creators murdered, the surviving opera shines.
