Coffee at Kerr with Arizona Opera – Frankenstein

Embracing Shelley’s original text, Frankenstein gives poignant voice to the Creature’s struggle and lays bare the horror of alienation and “otherness” with exquisite nuance. At the core of this heartbreaking tale lies an exquisitely wrought plea to look deeper within ourselves to find our commonality and to uphold our responsibility to one another.

Embrace the Unexpected

Built in the late 1940s and 1950s, the adobe house of Louise Lincoln Kerr is a funky, unexpected space to hear live music in the heart of Scottsdale.
