South Florida Classical Review

Florida Grand Opera's production of Andy Vores' No Exit is a compelling fusion of 20th century avant-garde theater and bracing vocal and instrumental writing. The second presentation in the company's Unexpected Opera in Unexpected Places series, this challenging and audacious work drew a hip South Beach audience to the Arena Lounge in the heart of Washington Avenue's club scene.

The whoops and yelps of the crowd at the conclusion of Thursday's late-night opening seemed closer to what one hears at a rock concert, and were a tribute to Vores' highly original creation.
