Intellectual ambition, technological arrogance and the deep human need for companionship combine in this opera adaptation of Mary Shelley’s classic novel.

Young medical student Victor Frankenstein ignores the warnings of his friends and family and uses electricity, alchemy and medical knowledge to create a new life which he immediately repels as a monstrous, evil creation. However, his creation learns the capacity to feel and love and returns for a final reckoning with devastating consequences.
