Kallisti presents an opera by Viktor Ullmann.

When the opera's obvious references to the Nazi regime were discovered during rehearsal, the work was banned it had tragic consequences for the composer and his family. Miraculously, the work survived.

The story is a type of fable. After a protracted and violent war, Death discovers that his job has been taken away from him by the Der Kaiser von Atlantis. Death decides to go on strike all of a sudden the concept of war, victory and defeat becomes irrelevant. The result is moving and heartbreaking.
