Eva and the Angel of Death
Apr. 18 - Apr. 19
A new opera by Austin-based composer Thomas Yee and librettist Aiden Kim Feltkamp, Eva and the Angel of Death portrays the true story of Eva Mozes Kor, a child survivor of the Holocaust and Josef Mengele’s medical experiments. Fifty years after her liberation, Kor returned to Auschwitz to announce her message of forgiveness, peace, hope, and healing. After Kor’s passing on an educational tour to Poland in 2019, we will continue her legacy through this communal artistic experience. In Kor’s own words from her 1995 Declaration of Amnesty, “NO MORE WARS, NO MORE EXPERIMENTS WITHOUT INFORMED CONSENT, NO MORE GAS CHAMBERS, NO MORE BOMBS, NO MORE HATRED, NO MORE KILLING, NO MORE AUSCHWITZES”.
