Washington Post - Recommended

"...As is customary for the company, Konstantine Lortkipanidze, Synetic’s house composer, mixes an eclectic soundscape of new and found melodies, mingled with classic compositions; the costumes by Erik Teague make their own sinister music, with tutus out of “Black Swan” nightmares and acolytes of the Phantom in masks that might have been sculpted by Edvard Munch."

BroadwayWorld - Highly Recommended

"...The success of this production is due to three parts working together so well that the end product is one sure to impress. The first part is the cast. Led by Synetic Theater's Founding Associate Artistic Director and the production's Choreographer Irina Tsikurishvili (The Phantom) is an exquisite force of nature every moment she is on the stage. Other standounts include the excellent Maryam Najafzada (Christine), and the talented Lottie Guidi (Younger Phantom). Jacob Thompson (Raoul), Rachael Small (Carlotta), and Delbis Cardona (Mon Charmin) give extraordinary performances as well. Rounding out the ensemble are Eliza Smith, Julia Holland, Janine Baumgardner, Thomas Beheler, Scean Aaron, and Joshua Cole Lucas. The cast not only gives Great Performances but they work so well together to create the exact journey that triumphed."

"...To accommodate the theatrical setting, this production blends Synetic's dynamic style of storytelling through gesture and flowing movement with elements of classical ballet. Daniel Pinha's scenic design incorporates several three-dimensional structures that take on different aspects as they move around the stage, as well as flat panels that display Patrick W. Lord's sometimes dizzying projections and Brian S. Allard's atmospheric, colorful lighting design."

"...As Synetic Theater races through its rowdy teenage years (not quite 20, yet), they have earned a reputation for finely-honed narrative dance, brilliant original music, and spectacular visual effects. For their current production Paata Tsikurishvili, Synetic’s founding Artistic Director, puts his unique stamp on Gaston Leroux’s classic novel, Phantom of the Opera. Sparingly adapted by Nathan Weinberger, it features the dark brilliance of Irina Tsikurishvili, who both choreographs and stars in this truly gothic tale."

"...Gothic romance to the hilt, and Synetic's company has the right sensibility-dark and glittering-to pull off such deeply purple dramatics that threaten to veer into melodrama but blessedly never do. Instead, you bask in skillful excess-skeins of velvet drapes and wedding cake gilded tiers in Scenic Designer Daniel Pinha's backdrops; the night-black and blood-red costumes and corsets by costume designer Erik Teague (there are even black toe shoes that would befit the villainess from Swan Lake); deliciously vertiginous projections from Patrick Lord that and a score by Konstantine Lortkipanidze frantic with strings and at times so lush you want to spread it with a butter knife."
