The Los Angeles Opera is launching a multi-year project to perform the music of composers whose work was suppressed by the Nazis. The inaugural concerts this March include a fully staged performance of Alexander Zemlinksy's A Florentine Tragedy.

Visual art also suppressed in Nazi Germany will be projected on the stage during the concert. James Conlon, the music director of the Los Angeles Opera, has dedicated himself to reviving this work.
