A documentary about the opera Der Kaiser von Atlantis, an allegory of the prevailing madness and death during the Third Reich. Its creator, Viktor Ullmann, wrote and rehearsed the piece in the most unthinkable place: a concentration camp. He never saw its premiere; he was assassinated in Auschwitz two weeks after the first dress rehearsal.
Thanks to a miraculous chain of events, the original score was saved from destruction and premiered in Amsterdam in December 1975.
A co-production by Miralab, Sintonía Media and Rosenfeld Films, with the collaboration of Česká televize
