The Passenger Community Conversations
March 20, 2016 - FINAL EVENT

You are invited to join Florida Grand Opera and its partners for The Passenger Community Conversations, a FREE series of thought-provoking events inspired by Weinberg’s The Passenger.

“Community Conversations” is a free series of thought-provoking discussions hosted by Florida Grand Opera that tie the opera art form with religion, politics, and the humanities. Using this season’s gripping opera The Passenger as a catalyst, we will explore other works of its composer, the roots of the opera, and experiences of the Holocaust through music, real-life stories, and personal retrospectives. These hour-long events stimulate interesting discussions about life and art that speak to the communities of South Florida.

It is our hope that The Passenger Community Conversations will show our community how The Passenger’s themes tie into the life and art of South Florida. This series is sponsored, in part, by the National Endowment of the Arts.

The event on Sunday, March 20 is the last in a five-event series for this season. Don't miss it!

Currently-Scheduled Event:

Ghosts of the Holocaust: Voices, Texts, Songs with FIU Green School
When: Sunday, March 20, 2016
Time: 3pm
Where: Florida International University
             College of Law Auditorium (RDB 1100)
             Modesto A. Maidique Campus
             11200 SW 8th Street, Miami

In partnership with FIU’s Green School of International and Public Affairs, three members of FIU’s theater program will present gripping memoirs written by those who endured life in a concentration camp.

Coupled with excerpts from The Passenger, this event will explore the personal horrors of the Holocaust and the realities faced by both the prisoners and their captors, both during the war and after.

Such timeless themes as love, death, guilt, and redemption all play their role, thus giving a more personal and relevant voice to these ghosts of the Holocaust.
