Horror rock opera by Milan Steigerwald and Pavla Forest about scary monster with human feelings.

ABOUT THE OPERA

Another spooky play which RockOpera Theatre offers is based on the famous classical horror novel by the English writer Mary Shelley. As the musical teasers on RockOpera's YouTube channel suggest, the opera is music-wise focusing on the synthesis of metal and electronic music.

The play tells the story of doctor Frankenstein, a crazy scientist who creates a hideous monster with human feelings - the plot from the 19th century book deals with the dilemma of creation and is to an extent inspired by classical mythology. The disturbing tale is very popular to date, partially thanks to the many film adaptations. The most famous actor who played the Frankenstein monster is the British actor Boris Karloff - he first appeared on the movie screens in 1931.
