The limited engagement of the Dallas Opera’s new production of THE LIGHTHOUSE is now history -- but the accolades continue to roll in on the tide.
Katie Womack of “The Observer” found it a “strange yet engrossing musical and theatrical experience.” Read more of her review here.
Over at “Theater Jones,” critic Gregory Sullivan Isaacs proclaimed the production a “must-see” and one that gave him a “glimmer of hope” for a new era of artistic collaboration that will demolish old barriers and preconceptions. Read his illuminating article here. And go back and catch the splendid series TJ has produced on the making of THE LIGHTHOUSE.
Veteran arts writer Olin Chism, reviewing for KERA’s “Art and Seek,” found it “a powerful theater piece, with music serving an attendant though striking role.” Catch Olin’s review here.
David Weuste of “Everyday Opera” called it “a shining start” to our new, dedicated chamber series and found reasons to praise virtually every aspect of the production. Read his assessment here.
At “The Dallas Morning News,” Classical Music Critic Scott Cantrell says the production was “quite vividly realized by three very fine singers in a deft staging by Kevin Moriarty, artistic director of the Dallas Theater Center.” Read Scott’s review here.
At “D Magazine,” after asking whether the Dallas Opera had bitten off more than it could chew (or words to that effect), critic Wayne Lee Gay hasn’t yet weighed-in with a final verdict. We’ll be the first to let you know.
And a new take on the production from Laura Begley at “Operagasm,” a site by and for singers and other people passionate about opera. Read it here.
