A live performance of “Defiant Requiem: Verdi at Terezín,” which displays performances of Verdi’s "Requiem" put on by concentration camp prisoners during World War II, will be shown at Lincoln Center. The performance will feature Bebe Neuwirth and John Rubinstein. Defiant Requiem tells the story of 16 performances put on by prisoners at the Theresienstadt concentration camp during World War II amid starvation, abuse and death.

This story will be commemorated at Avery Fisher Hall, which includes a concert/drama featuring a live performance of Verdi’s "Requiem" interspersed with historic film, testimony from survivors and narration that tells the tale of these courageous men and woman. In addition to Neuwirth and Rubeinstein, soloists soprano Jennifer Check, mezzo-soprano Ann McMahon Quintero, tenor Steven Tharp and bass Wilhelm Schwinghammer will be featured, as well as The Orchestra of Terezín Remembrance and The Collegiate Chorale.
