The Dallas Opera and Dallas Holocaust Museum will present Korngold, The Lost Composer?, a panel discussion on the life, work and legacy of exiled 20th century composer Erich Wolfgang Korngold, who went from Viennese “wunderkind” to one of the founding fathers of the “Great American Film Score” when the Nazi conquest of Europe made it impossible for him to return home.

The panel will include Cantor Richard Cohn from Temple Emanu-El, Dr. Timothy Jackson, Professor of Music Theory at the University of North Texas, Barton Weiss, Associate Professor of Film/Video at the University of Texas at Arlington and Founder of “3 Stars Jewish Cinema” and Keith Cerny, General Director and CEO of The Dallas Opera.

The panel will consider the impact of the Nazi threat on classical music in both Europe and Hollywood, as well as the tremendous loss of life and talent in the Holocaust which echoes down to the present day.
