Why See Metropolitan Opera: Two Boys?
The opera explores the shadowy world of the Internet as a detective investigates the stabbing of one teenage boy by another—and discovers a tangled web of online intrigue.
Loosely inspired by real events, director Bartlett Sher’s production includes striking video projections by 59 Productions (Satyagraha, The Enchanted Island), while Muhly’s score—featuring lyrical vocal writing and “shimmeringly ecstatic choruses” (London Telegraph) —“finds an exciting new musical language” (Wall Street Journal) to capture the mysterious realm of cyberspace.
Opening night: 21 October 2013
Two hours and ten minutes long with one intermission.
And before you stop reading
Sung in English with Met Titles in Spanish, German and English.
