Critics praise Courtney Love's performance in pop opera

PanARMENIAN.Net - Courtney Love is currently starring in ‘Kansas City Choir Boy’, a pop opera written by Todd Almond as part of the Prototype Festival.

Reviews of the show have now been published and have been consistent in their praise of the ‘Hole’ singer’s performance, Gigwise reports.

The New York Post said: “No matter what [Love] does, we pay attention… She’s even better than famous - she’s infamous. In our age of Vine celebrities, this 50-year-old tornado continues to fascinate.”

Similarly, the Rolling Stone praised Love, focusing on her vocal ability saying: “Her voice, ravaged as ever, is not what one generally hears in musicals, let alone “opera.” But it remains a powerful, visceral instrument, and when it harmonises with Almond’s on the word “bruise,” the effect is magnificent.”

Love spoke about the show to the New York Times last week and revealed: “It’s like putting out a single. If it gets catchy, then we do it in London or something. If it doesn’t, it doesn’t. We think it’s really catchy and fabulous.”
