Mary Shelley’s groundbreaking novel Frankenstein was published 200 years ago. But far from the grunting Hollywood brutishness of Boris Karloff, the original told the heartbreaking story of a living, feeling creature, brought into the world only to be forsaken by his creator and left to fend for himself in a hostile world. Drawing the parallels to modern society, pianist/composer Gregg Kallor will offer the World Premiere of a new suite of operatic sketches based on the monster’s harrowing tale, in a partnership with On Site Opera. The program will also feature his other acclaimed vocal works, and the premiere of a solo piano piece in tribute to Leonard Bernstein.

The Angel’s Share, a new series of opera and chamber music concerts, takes place in Green-Wood’s Catacombs. One of the oldest structures in the 478-acre National Historic Landmark Cemetery, the Catacombs were built in the 1850s and are normally closed to the public. The series takes its name from the distiller’s term for whiskey that evaporates while maturing in the barrel, thus going to the angels.

Each performance includes a pre-concert reception at sunset overlooking New York harbor and the Manhattan skyline.

$75 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $80 for non-members
