—The Star

Hell’s Fury is an unforgettable new opera that examines the life of composer Hanns Eisler (1898–1962), known for his Oscar-nominated film scores, collaborations with Bertolt Brecht, and for composing the national anthem of East Germany. In the shadow of World War I, Eisler fled Nazi Germany with a visa to the United States, only to become blacklisted by Hollywood studio execs for his communist beliefs. Despite support from the Hollywood's greatest players at the time—Charlie Chaplin, Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, Woody Guthrie, and more—Eisler was deported. He died in East Berlin in 1962.
