R. B. SCHLATHER: OPERA: ALCINA

ALCINA-master675

“Staged in an intimate, plain gallery space decorated with little more than a smudge of lipstick on one wall and a snarling boar’s head mounted on another, this “Alcina,” seen on Sunday, elegantly and entertainingly conjured a catalog of human emotions in its collision of confused, desperate lovers… The production’s two weeks of rehearsals were free and open to the public, and the performances were streamed live on the Internet as well as broadcast on a television in the gallery’s front window, a welcoming and welcome degree of openness for an art form that intimidates many.”
