[PermaDeath: A Video Game Opera]

I joined Dan Visconti and Cerise Jacobs’ PermaDeath: A Video Game Opera two days before the first rehearsal when the lead soprano had to drop out and from that moment on, it’s been a non-stop wild ride! Check out our promo video and if you’re in Boston, come see the show at the Cutler Majestic Theatre on September 27-19th at 8pm.

[THE REVIEWS]

[Boston Classical Review]

“As Sonny, Maggie Finnegan sang with a soft but nimble coloratura that floated effortlessly in her plaintive cry in the final scene, where she sacrifices her life to save Apollo. Finnegan’s acting made Sonny an especially sympathetic figure as she struggled with her disease and over the fear of losing her friend.”

[The Boston Globe]

“The wheelchair-bound Sonny [was] sung with crisp excellence by soprano Maggie Finnegan”

[Boston Music Intelligencer]

“Maggie Finnegan (Sonny) [had a] delicate, yet expressive soprano, precisely tempered in its upper ranges.”
