Notes & Reviews:

Based on the true story of two teenage lovers the Holocaust tore apart forever, the dramatic song cycle 'For a Look or a Touch' casts long-awaited light on the fate of gay Germans in the Holocaust. By noted young American opera composer Jake Heggie and librettist Gene Scheer, the work juxtaposes the exuberant freedom of pre-World War II Berlin with the brutal Nazi horrors that followed, while making an eloquent, poignant plea for remembrance.
