Why See Metropolitan Opera - Marnie?
The US Premiere of Nico Muhly's Compelling Thriller
Based on the novel by Winston Graham and subsequent silver screen classic by Hitchcock, Nico Muhly's Met Opera-commissioned Marnie is a brand new opera that breaks the traditional mould with its sweeping, cinematic scope and rapidly moving action. Helmed by Tony Award winning director Micheal Mayer (the man behind 2007 Broadway smash Spring Awakening), the thought-provoking psychological thriller examines freedom, redemption and the ties that bind.
The stories titular character, played by Grammy Award-winning mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard, is an enigmatic young woman whose attempts to escape the repressed traumas of her past culminate in multiple identities and embezzlement as she hops from one city to the next. When she meets business man Mark, played by British baritone Christopher Maltman, his relentless pursuit of her sets off a harrowing series of events that uncover Marnie's mysterious past.
