Met Opera Live: Marnie

Saturday, November 17, 2018 - 1:00pm
Walker Recital Hall

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. View the performance from New York’s Metropolitan Opera on Saturday, Nov. 17, at 12:55 p.m. in the Mary D’Angelo Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors, and $12 for students/youth. To purchase tickets, visit miac.mercyhurst.edu or call 814-824-3000.
