Angel's Share

Gregg Kallor

Sketches from Frankenstein

the long version

Mary Shelley’s groundbreaking novel Frankenstein was published 200 years ago, essentially inventing the horror genre. But far from the grunting Hollywood brutishness of Boris Karloff, the original told the heartbreaking story of a living, feeling creature, brought into the world only to be forsaken by his creator and left to fend for himself. Drawing the parallels to modern society, pianist/composer Gregg Kallor will offer the World Premiere of a new suite of operatic sketches based on the monster’s harrowing tale, in partnership with the amazing folks at On Site Opera. The program will also feature other acclaimed vocal works by Kallor, as well as the premiere of a solo piano piece dedicated to Leonard Bernstein, a permanent Green-Wood resident.

The short version

There’s a monster lurking in all of us - let one of New York’s most soulful, searching composers show you the true nature of Frankenstein. The individual performance series of The Angel’s Share could not end on a higher note than this.
