Following on from recent productions at Vietnam’s finest opera houses includingJekyll & HydeandMacbeth, TNT are back in Vietnam this March with a stage-adapted production of the Mary Shelley novel,Frankenstein.
Exploring the eternal question, “How much progress is too much?”, director Paul Stebbings has given this issue a human dimension through the use of some “serious Gothic comedy”. Says the press release, “This powerful work reveals why the name ‘Frankenstein’ resonates in the modern world like few others... perhaps our most potent symbol for our fear of a future beyond human control
Frankenstein: The Monster and the Myth will be performed at the Hanoi Opera House (1 Trang Tien, Hoan Kiem, Hanoi) on Mar. 18 at 8pm, and at the Ho Chi Minh City Opera House (7 Lam Son Square, Q1, HCMC) on Mar. 20 at 11am and 8pm, and again on Mar. 21 at 8pm.
