SOME LIGHT EMERGES

QUOTES

Some Light Emerges tells [its characters’] stories with directness and simplicity.

—Texas Classical Voice.

 

"Some Light Emerges," dives right into Rothko and de Menil's shared spiritual vision with plaintive, purposefully meandering music by Laura Kaminsky and an audacious libretto by Mark Campbell and Kimberly Reed. The 75-minute chamber piece just might be the best articulation of the Rothko Chapel's purpose in modern times.

—Houston Chronicle.
