WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The joys and perils of motherhood, the hovering shadow of infant mortality, and the sting of loneliness and rejection merge as Mary Shelley creates her masterwork, Frankenstein. The creature that Dr. Frankenstein produces, an assemblage of disparate elements, coalesces into a monster with a human soul. His horrific appearance conceals the gentlest heart. Through no fault of his own, he descends into evil. Excerpts from the 1818 edition of Frankenstein, music, and dance are interwoven with Mary Shelley's letters and diaries, creating parallel narratives as both dramas unfold. This production features music by Bach, Liszt, and Schubert.
