THEATER TALK’s executive producer and co-host Susan Haskins lauds Rappaccini’s Daughter.

Rappaccini’s Daughter is a moving and inventive adaptation of Hawthorne’s profound gothic tale of love, death and botany. Now at Theater for the New City, this strikingly theatrical opera has lyrics by Linsey Abrams, music by Michael Cohen and was staged by Lissa Moira. Add more instruments to the musical director Jonathan Fox Powers’ impressive solo piano accompaniment, and this engaging work would be worthy of a place onstage at The Met.”
