”The composer Mark Grey is a master...what he is up to has far-reaching implications for the direction that classical music will take this century.”
Los Angeles Times
“A triumph...an achievement that has all the markings of a Wagnerian Gesamtkunstwerk — a composite work of art that might well prove a major monument of early 21st-century music.“
Opera Today
“Grey’s command of the orchestra is often striking, with ingenious combinations of instrumental color and a dramatic sense of scale that shows off those resources expertly.”
San Francisco Chronicle
”Mark Grey's score is perfectly crafted, impeccably paced, beautifully scored.”
The Arizona Republic
”We found that Richard Strauss and Richard Wagner were not light years away, when Grey put down his impressive score.”
Operagazet
”Frankenstein is one of those works which demands to take a step back, and while its philosophical and abstract side may still scare an unaccustomed audience, Frankenstein is in any case the kind of approach opera needs.”
Le Soir
”If we want opera to still be vital in a few centuries, alongside the preservation of the tradition, we need to courageously launch completely new creations such as this Frankenstein...”
Fattitaliani
”We’ve been long overdue for a major “Frankenstein” opera, and this futuristic version filled the bill...the opera becomes a gripping metaphor for the intersection of machine and humanity.”
The Los Angeles Times
