Review in a hurry: ‘Thumbprint’ at LA Opera

We recently got some feedback about LAO’s unusual opera, Thumbprint by Kamala Sankaram, who also stars in the show.  The mini-rave comes from Joanna Cazden, a longtime Lister.  The groundbreaking Off Grand production is playing through this weekend, and we just had to share:

Lauri & all:

I saw “Thumbprint” tonight at Redcat & TOTALLY recommend it.  It’s a profound (true) feminist story from Pakistan, written entirely by women & performed with exquisite balance of Western & South Asian styles/tonalities. Beautifully staged & sung, just a top-notch & groundbreaking work in every dimension. 
Hope some other Listers will have the chance to go.
cheers –
Thanks, Joanna, for the feedback.  This timely opera is making quite an impact, and we’re happy to help spread the word.  Mark Swed, writing for the Los Angeles Times, liked it, too:
“A vibrant call for women’s rights… You don’t leave the theater unimpressed or unmoved.”
– Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times
