Liz Johnstone at D magazine serves up a reminder that tonight marks one of the few remaining performances of THE ASPERN PAPERS, which has critics grasping for superlatives. She writes: “In a crumbling house on Lake Como, an aging opera diva and her niece live in relative seclusion until their solitude is interrupted by a stranger’s arrival. The stranger claims to be a writer, but of course, everyone’s kinda shady. Our critic, Wayne Lee Gay, says that layers of romantic betrayal coupled with the opera’s mythical structure and high-minded themes “demands a high level of mental alertness and emotional openness from the audience—which is, after all, a large part of what great opera is about.” Read his review here before you go, and if you don’t believe us, both the Dallas Observer and the Morning News felt similarly thrilled.”
Catch the entire piece right here and remember that the curtain is at 7:30 this evening. Tickets are available by phone, online or at the door, starting at $19.
