OWEN WINGRAVE

​University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music (CCM)

November 2013

Director: Kenneth Shaw

Lighting: Mark C. Williams

Costumes: Caroline Spitzer

“A massive, oppressive set loomed over the characters. The gloomy family manse and its immense portrait gallery were simply extraordinary (scenic design by Gabriel Firestone). By treating the set design as 'another character,' stage director Kenneth Shaw and his team of mostly student designers stunningly captured the atmospheric gloom while gradually illuminating the plot’s direction. It all led to the shocking finale, a coup-de-théâtre surrounding Wingrave’s demise that I won’t reveal here. Suffice it to say it was breathtaking.”

 

          - Janelle Gelfand, Cincinnati Enquirer

“The production was by all measures outstanding… With scenic design by CCM senior Gabriel Firestone, the production was well adapted to staging the work with its rapid, cinema-like scene changes.” - Distinction of Best of 2013 in Cincinnati

 

          - Mary Ellyn Hutton, Music In Cincinnati

 

“Director Shaw, maestro Müller-Stosch, in the pit, and designers Gabriel Firestone (scenery), Mark C. Williams (lighting), and Caroline Spitzer (costumes) have mounted a strong, streamlined, subtle, sober and somber production, lit by the bright performances of a youthful troupe.”
