Beth Greenberg

Stage Director and Dramaturg

Lori Laitman has an uncanny gift for not only lyric, but dramatic vocal writing — always knowing where, when and how to unleash her characters’ deepest longing, triumps, failures and passions, and how those desires and events ebb and flow within the timeline of her musical landscape. I’ve had the good fortune to direct the world premieres of three of her operas – The Scarlet Letter, The Three Feathers and Uncovered — and with each, I am astounded at her limitless ability to create rich worlds for her characters, each struggling with their unique human predicaments.
