One of the things that struck composer Gregg Kallor about Mary Shelley’s iconic 200-year-old novel “Frankenstein” was how little attention the writer paid to Victor Frankenstein’s experiments that gave life to his creature.

“She just talked about Viktor’s reaction to that moment and then the story shifted and gave us the creature’s reaction,” Kallor said. “I think she was urging us to consider the consequences in advance and think about the implications of our technological advances. It’s not just can we do this but should we.”
