Capitol City Opera Presents the World Premiere of THE SECRET AGENT, 3/15

Capitol City Opera will present the world premiere of Atlanta-based composer Curtis Bryant's newly completed opera, The Secret Agent.

Based on the 1907 novel of the same name by Joseph Conrad, with libretto by New York forensic psychiatrist Allen Reichman, The Secret Agent will feature a stellar cast of Atlanta-based talent, including a 17-piece chamber orchestra. Performances will be Friday, March 15, 2013 at 8pm, Saturday, March 16, 2013 at 8pm, and Sunday, March 17, 2013 at 3pm at Conant Performing Arts Center at Oglethorpe University. Tickets are available online at CCITYOPERA.org.

The Secret Agent is a tale of intrigue, anarchy, espionage, betrayal, murder and suicide, and explores the impact of these dark and unnerving themes on human relationships. The production, set in 1930's London, will evoke the feelings and mystery of film noir. One hundred years after Joseph Conrad published The Secret Agent, the story is still fresh and resonant.

The production is directed by Michael Nutter, the Artistic Director of Capitol City Opera, with Music Direction by Catherine Giel. It is conducted by Michael Giel, and features baritone Wade Thomas as Adolf Verloc, the secret agent; soprano Elizabeth Claxton as Winnie Verloc, Adolf's wife; baritone Ivan Segovia as Karl Yundt, the man who always carries a bomb; counter-tenor Chase Davidson as Stevie, the tragic hero; and tenor Timothy Miller as Alexander Ossipan, the anarchist and writer of pamphlets.
