Love, Lies and Justice
The concert will be available at 7.30pm on Thursday 12th November, and for 30 days following.
Drawing on a remarkable archive of family letters and diaries, Philippe Sands offers a unique account of the daily life of a senior Nazi and fugitive, SS Brigadeführer Otto Freiherr von Wächter. Following the war, he spent three years as a fugitive, before attempting to flee to Argentina on the ‘ratline’. He died unexpectedly, in July 1949, a few days after spending a weekend with an ‘old comrade’. What happened to Otto Wächter, and how did he die?
To help to get the most out of the performance, we are also delighted to offer a complimentary programme for the concert, with more details of the performers and works included. Download the programme here.
