Out of Darkness – An Opera of Survival is devoted to remembering Holocaust musicians and their art through recordings and commissions of new works. It is a moving musical witness to survival told in three chapters.

Another Sunrise tells the story of Krystyna Zywulska who created poems and songs in Auschwitz that circulated secretly and became anthems of defiance among her fellow prisoners. Farewell, Auschwitz adapts her lyrics, with their pleas to preserve a sense of humanity in an inhumane place. For a Look or a Touch is a moving song cycle that illuminates the Nazi persecution of homosexuals through its intimate story of loss.

These works were commissioned by Music of Remembrance, a Seattle-based organization dedicated to remembering the Holocaust through music.
