VIDE: Preview The Met's US Premiere of MARNIE
In the video below, watch as Isabel Leonard sings the title character's aria, with composer Nico Muhly at the piano and Nadia Sirota on viola, at National Sawdust. "Marnie" has its U.S. premiere at the Met on October 19.
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.
