Sex, angels and cannibalism: Written on Skin

Jacquelyn Stucker (Frasquita), Anna Goryachova (Carmen) and Aigul Akhmetashina (Mercédès) © ROH | Bill Cooper

Modified rapture: Tcherniakov's new Tristan

Andreas Schager (Tristan) and Anja Kampe (Isolde) © Monika Rittershaus

Victorian murder mystery: Elizabeth Cree at Chicago Opera Theater

Richard Troxell (Dan Leno) and Katherine Pracht (Elizabeth Cree) © Evan Hanover
