This powerful and compelling play explores a fascinating and disturbing dilemma that faced creative artists in Nazi Germany. But it raises

He could have left and showed his disgust at a violent racist dictatorship. Or he could have stayed to protect the values of German civilisation and help his fellow musicians.
He stayed and conducted for Hitler. Did he do the right thing? Was he just putting his personal ambition above his principles? Should he have left the country and lived in exile? What would we have done?
The play takes place in the ruins of Berlin after the German defeat. To work again Furtwängler must be investigated by an American de-Nazification tribunal. But this is run by a hard-nosed, hostile US officer who has no interest in music and little sympathy for the great conductor. As the interviews go on, the tension between the two men increases. It is increasingly difficult to know what is right and which side to take.
The powerful and compelling play explores a fascinating and disturbing dilemma that faced creative artists in Nazi Germany. But it raises wider issues – at what point would we say ‘NO’ before it is too late?
