SOLD OUT Cabaret of Hope: Warsaw 1941

Presented by Cincinnati Opera and Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center at Music Hall, Cincinnati OH

Apr 13 - 14 2022
SOLD OUT Cabaret of Hope: Warsaw 1941

Presented in honor of the Jewish Cincinnati Bicentennial, this recreation of the cabaret experience in the Warsaw Ghetto serves as both a remembrance and a celebration of the creativity that flourished amid extraordinary oppression.

It’s 1941 in Warsaw, Poland, in a cordoned-off area known as the Warsaw Ghetto, where over 400,000 Jews are held captive. Somehow, nightlife continues to thrive with cafés and restaurants offering entertainment and a temporary respite for residents. Perhaps the most famous was the Café Sztuka, where renowned poets, singers, and musicians appeared regularly. The performances included both classical music and new songs by George Gershwin, Jerome Kern, and Kurt Weill, among others. Pianist Władysław Szpilman, the subject of the 2002 film The Pianist, was the most famous of these musicians. Two star singers of the Ghetto were soprano Maria Ajzensztadt, known as the “Nightingale of the Ghetto,” and cabaret singer Vera Gran.

Presented in collaboration with the Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati, the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati, and The Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center in honor of the Jewish Cincinnati Bicentennial, Cabaret of Hope: Warsaw 1941 is a recreation of the cabaret experience in the Warsaw Ghetto. Featuring music and poetry from the era, the event is both a remembrance and a celebration of the creativity that flourished amid extraordinary oppression.
