Schleppy Nabucco’s review of “Pygmalion”

I think the idea of immersive opera is great and a new way to open opera to different audiences, and as On Site Opera founder, Eric Einhorn, noted, it’s also a way to bring venues such as Madame Tussauds to New Yorkers who normally do not seek out the tourist attractions in their own city. There were several small children in the audience and this short one act opera may have been appealing to them as the action moved around the room, “statues” came to life, Cupid raced around with a bow and arrow…On Site Opera’s creative approach, energy and enthusiasm towards new opera experiences is just what the art form needs to stay relevant and catch the eye of younger audiences.  I look forward to future performances of this promising young opera company.
