  1. So far, I’ve seen only Madame White Snake, though I hope to see the other two tonight and tomorrow.

    I really didn’t know what to expect, as this is the first modern opera I’ve seen. I loved it!

    Very engaging. Moving. Haunting. At the end, after the applause, I sat quietly for a moment, teary-eyed, overwhelmed. Who knew that opera was such an emotional experience!

    The production is beautiful, and technically amazing. The integration of projections and built set pieces is particularly impressive, especially for the Fall and Winter acts. Some of the looks were achingly beautiful.

    Having the chorus along the sides was also very wonderful, as their voices washed over us.

    All in all, a totally immersive theater experience.

    Kudos to ArtsEmerson for producing Madame White Snake. An adventurous choice, to be sure, and visually stunning, to say the least. I’m still reflecting on the opera’s themes. But more important, it was gratifying to see a full house for this complex and challenging show — a good sign for the success of more such shows in the future. Here’s hoping!
