MINI REVIEW

After the masterful movement-based, non-verbal 2000 adaptation of Gogols novella about a lowly clerk, this operatic version doesnt quite measure up. Rolfes score is jaunty and energetic, if a little too on the nose, but Panychs libretto is filled with contrived rhymes that try too hard to be clever. The performers, among them Peter McGillivray, Erica Iris Huang and, in the lead, Geoffrey Sirett, are good. But the best theatrical moments in the production hail from the original show.
