The Ophelia Project at Franklin Stage Company
by BWW News Desk - Jul 28, 2016

The Franklin Stage Company (FSC) is thrilled to announce the next weekend of performances in its 20th season: THE OPHELIA PROJECT playing August 5th, 6th and 7th, Friday and Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 5pm.  Created by rapidly rising soprano Cree Carrico (San Francisco Opera, Fort Worth Opera, Chatutaqua Opera, etc.) and director Christopher Mirto, and performed at FSC by Ms. Carrico with pianist Jody Schum, this piece began its life as a recital at the Manhattan School of Music and was later chosen to inaugurate Opera America's Emerging Artist Recital Series at the National Opera Center in October, 2013. However, from its inception this piece stretched the boundaries of recital. Through arias from different operas of Shakespeare's Hamlet and monologues from writers spanning Shakespeare to Sarah Kane, Carrico creates a compelling, unexpected portrait of Hamlet's doomed heroine who battles for sanity as she is driven to madness by broken heart and crushed dreams. These three performances at FSC mark the first time this piece will break free of the confines of a recital format to live and breathe in a more theatrical and narrative space.   (more...)
