The Final Veil
Q&A post-show
Saturday, May 4, 2019 at 8:00PM

Abrons Arts Center, Underground Theater
466 Grand Street
New York, NY 10002


Combining contemporary opera and modern dance, The Final Veil remembers Polish-Jewish dancer Franceska Mann in the remarkable moments leading up to her death in the gas chambers of Auschwitz. In a split second, Mann makes a decision that will certainly cost her life, yet save the lives of others. The Final Veil poses the question: Can our physical bodies demonstrate resistance even in the face of complete vulnerability? Join composer J.L. Marlor and performer Cassandra Rosebeetle as we honor the life and sacrifices of Franceska Mann.
