Working It Out

I saw a wonderful new play last night that was thematically right up my alley – combining music, philosophy and strong characters. Performed by the New Repertory Theatre at the Arsenal Center for the Arts in Watertown, Michael Hollinger’s Opus is an intense character study involving the internal psychodynamics of a veteran string quartet, rife with knowing references to chamber music and a bit of philosophy about art and life.

If you’re in the Boston area and intrigued by this sort of thing, I highly recommend it. The play runs through Sunday, April 18, and there’s literally not a bad seat in the house at the small, but impressive, theater. The Boston Globe’s review from April 1, which spurred us to go, was on the mark.
