Composer Nico Muhly unveils his second new opera for the Met with this gripping reimagining of Winston Graham’s novel, set in the 1950s, about a beautiful, mysterious young woman who assumes multiple identities. Director Michael Mayer and his creative team have devised a fast-moving, cinematic world for this exhilarating story of denial and deceit, which also inspired a film by Alfred Hitchcock. Mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard sings the enigmatic Marnie, and baritone Christopher Maltman is the man who pursues her—with disastrous results. Robert Spano conducts.
Please join us for a complimentary pre-opera lecture in The Paramount Theater Auditorium at 12:00PM. The lecture for Marnie will be conducted by Tim Snider, attorney and host of WTJU’s Sunday Opera Matinee.
Production a gift of Andrew J. Martin-Weber. Additional funding from the Francis Goelet Charitable Trusts, Dr. Coco Lazaroff, and American Express.
