This November, Society of the Four Arts will be showing Marnie, broadcasted live from the Metropolitan Opera in New York City.
With music written by Nico Muhly and libretto by Nicholas Wright, Marnie is a gripping reimagining of Winston Graham’s novel, set in the 1950s, about a beautiful young woman who assumes multiple identities. Director Michael Mayer has devised a fast-moving, cinematic world for this exhilarating story of denial and deceit. Mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard sings Marnie, and baritone Christopher Maltman is the man who pursues her — with disastrous results, as Robert Spano conducts.
Run time is 3 hours and 17 minutes with one intermission, and tickets are $25 online.
The event takes place on Saturday, November 10th at 1:00 pm…
