Lyric Opera general director Anthony Freud discusses his role in bringing Mieczyslaw Weinberg's 1968 opera The Passenger to the stage. Its planned premiere at the Bolshoi was suppressed by Soviet authorities because of its depiction of the Holocaust; it didn't receive a proper production until 2010. Andrew Patner (WFMT, Sun-Times) interviews Freud.
