PETERBOROUGH -- The Metropolitan Opera’s New York City performance of composer Nico Muhly’s “Marnie” will screened live at the Peterborough Players’ theater, 55 Hadley Road, at 1 p.m. Saturday.
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 a story of denial and deceit.
Mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard sings the part of the enigmatic Marnie, and baritone Christopher Maltman is the man who pursues her — with disastrous results. Robert Spano conducts.
Runtime is about 2 hours and 45 minutes, including one intermission.
Tickets to the Met Live screening are $25. For details, call 924-7585 or visit www.peterboroughplayers.org.
