CRITICAL PRAISE FOR HAMLET SOUNDTHEATER/OPERA

"The 21-year journey to the stage of Carson Kievman's opera Hamlet took an important step forward with the premiere of a staged concert version on Friday night at Kievman's SoBe Institute of the Arts in Miami Beach."

"Hamlet's solo monologues are poignantly emotive, the beautiful arioso writing dramatically powerful... the ghost scene is wonderfully eerie... Horatio's final goodnight sweet prince is lyrically potent."

"Kenneth Mattice was a charismatic Hamlet, his fine lyric baritone spinning the often unaccompanied solos effortlessly. Unhinged from the onset, Mattice's prince seemed doomed with every step and utterance. Megan Brus nearly stole the show as Ophelia with her flawless coloratura and compelling portrait of emotional disintegration."

 "A strong theatrical crescendo builds from the confrontation of Hamlet and Ophelia through the play within a play and Ophelia's haunting mad scene. Indeed one of Kievman's major accomplishments is turning the usually nondescript character of Ophelia into a strong dramatic persona."
 

"Elegantly costumed by Angelina Esposito with lighting by Robert Perry that alternates bright glints of color with shadowy effects, Kievman's production effectively utilizes the entire space of the Little Stage Theater, aisles and entrances included. A well-drilled cast presented the score in its best light." 

Lawrence Budmen, The Miami Herald / South Florida Classical Review 3/3/12

Besides the critical acclaim that Hamlet brought to SoBe Arts, several performances of this work ignited spontaneous standing ovations! Audience reactions were amazing, including post-show email comments like the following: 

“HAMLET was enjoyable from start to finish.  The trios and ensemble work were especially brilliant (music and acting). I was moved and also the humor came through which you obviously knew was there.  Your direction was spectacular.  You should be very proud!”

“Dear SoBe Arts, I just wanted to congratulate Mr. Carson Kievman and all of his actors, lighting director, and staff. My boyfriend and I never expected such an outstanding production. The theater was cozy and we felt as if it were a private show. Too bad we went on the last day and can’t tell our family and friends. Being there reminded us of the great gift of theater actors and how they can bring to life a play that is centuries old. Congratulations and thank you very much.”
