As America begins to recognise the problems of mass incarceration, this intensely researched show takes the issue one step further to ask how it can deal with mass reintegration, especially for those inmates who have faced months or years in solitary confinement. Solitary is a wordless piece of physical theatre following one man's descent into memory and madness using ensemble, Lecoq based techniques and classically trained Juilliard musicians to pull audiences into the isolated world of what inmates call 'the box'. As it explores the lasting effects of this extreme form of imprisonment, Solitary asks what the purpose of the penal system is: rehabilitation, or punishment? And what happens when the door is opened?

Well, it's that time of the year again--time for a look-back on what was worth making note of during the calendar year that's about to come to an end. It's from a totally personal, subjective point of view, of course, but frankly that's the way opera-lovers always seem to like it, n'est-ce pas? The productions worth noting come from places big, small and in-between, from composers old as the hills to freshly minted or somewhere in between (likewise the performers), from traditional or boldly modern to simply stand up and sing.
