Mortality Mansions 

"One of the most impressive and deeply moving vocal works of the 21st century"  (NATS Journal of Singing) 


Powerful... glowing... radiant... Garfein keeps the vocal line simple and forthright, communicating the text naturally while allowing the piano part to provide harmonic freshness. (Opera News)

Sister Carrie
"An important addition to the American operatic canon." (Opera News)

Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead
"Composer-librettist Garfein set the diamond-bright dialogue of the Tom Stoppard play with clarity and wit, heightening the comedy through skillful ensemble writing and characterization.'  (The Wall Street Journal)
