Keen aesthetic: Trojan women’s bone-colored masks hover like spectral mourning girls; ominous musical accompaniment augments tension; chorus’s graceful choreography, tuneful melodies imbued with sorrow and bewilderment. The strongest ensemble work I’ve seen by CGTO, and Jamie Rea’s torn, impassioned Andromache is literally breathtaking. Vana O’Brien as Hecuba weak, clumsy, miscast.
