Marnie

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.

Music: Nico Muhly

New Yorker
Imaginatively staged … dazzling costumes Vogue
The cast was filled with talent … the strong baritone Christopher Maltman and the incisive countertenor Iestyn Davies … Muhly is a deeply gifted composer. Washington Post
