By David Salazar

Audiences who can’t catch the world premiere run of composer Mark Grey and librettist Julia Canosa’s “Frankenstein”from La Monnaie will still get a chance to catch the performance from March 15, 2019 via OperaVision.

The stream kicks off at 8 p.m. local time. That’s around 3 p.m. EDT and 12 p.m. PST for the start time. It will be available for repeat viewings on Opera Vision until Sept. 14, 2019.

The new opera, based on the novel by Mary Shelley, will feature Scott Hendricks as Victor Frankenstein, while Topi Lehtipuu as the creature. Eleonore Marguerre will star as Elizabeth. Bassem Akiki conducts.

The streaming service is free through OperaVision, which, per its official website, is a project “supported by the European Union’s Creative Europe program, OperaVision builds on the success of The Opera Platform, with more contributing opera companies from more countries, under the editorial supervision of Opera Europa, the European association of opera companies and festivals. OperaVision brings together 30 partners from 18 countries and invites you to travel and discover the diversity of opera from wherever you want, whenever you want.”

Next up on OperaVision will be the production of “Werther” from Bergen National Opera.
