THE BUZZ

“The energy of the composer [Mason Bates] reacts with that of his mercurial subject to create something theatrically arresting and new.” —Wall Street Journal

Edward Parks “holds center stage effortlessly, alternating at unpredictable intervals between gleeful young rebel and corporate tyrant, between spiritual seeker and flat-out bastard.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“As always, the mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke is a beating heart onstage, a warm and sympathetic presence as Laurene.” —The New York Times
