THE STORY: After being deserted in her wheelchair while her cranky nurse goes shopping, the title character of AGNES persuades a stranger to kill her, thus releasing her from her limited and unhappy life.
"[Michael John LaChiusa] has a heightened hothouse style reminiscent of that in Leonard Bernstein's Trouble in Tahiti, with everyone singing intensely about seemingly mundane matters." óNY Times.
