Presented by Ensemble for the Romantic CenturySYNOPSIS:
The joys and perils of motherhood, the hovering shadow of infant mortality, and the sting of loneliness and rejection merge as Mary Shelley creates her masterwork, Frankenstein
. The Creature that Dr. Frankenstein produces, an assemblage of disparate elements, coalesces into a monster with a human soul. His horrific appearance conceals the gentlest heart. Through no fault of his own, he is forced to descend into evil deeds. Excerpts from the 1818 edition of Frankenstein
, music, and dance interwoven with Mary Shelley's letters and diaries create parallel narratives as both dramas unfold.
