Notes & Reviews:

'Joseph Merrick, The Elephan Man' is Petitgirard's fist opera. It depicts the tragic story of Joseph Merrick, who was born with horrifying deformities and exploited as both a freak show exhibit and a medical curiosity. Petitgirard's compelling and moving score shows us Merrick at various stages of his tragic life until his death at age 27 in 1890.
