OperaWire: Best of 2018

"But if I simply must select a single performance, above all, then that is actually quite easy: Gregg Kallor’s “Sketches from Frankenstein.” The work in progress, “staged” at Brooklyn’s historic Green-wood Cemetery, inside the catacombs, was both a physical and operatic “experience” unlike any other. The tomb-filled catacomb, lit by dozens of candles, was beyond eerie and atmospheric. And the matching physicality and power of the trip of performers made this intimate experience completely unforgettable — and suitably haunting."
