Composer Nico Muhly returns to the Met with a thrilling new work, which reimagines Winston Graham’s novel for the operatic stage. Set in 1950s England, Marnie stars Isabel Leonard in the title role alongsideChristopher Maltman as Mark Rutland. Hewing more closely to the novel than its cinematic predecessor by Alfred Hitchcock,Marnie is a dark mystery. Leonard’s character assumes multiple identities, running from a painful past into an all too uncertain future. This opera can also offer a timely commentary of gender power dynamics in the current era of #MeToo. PBS Free Streaming Met Opera “Marnie” February 1st

Creators
Nico Muhly (b. 1981) is one of the most notable composers working today, with a wide-ranging oeuvre encompassing ballet music, orchestral and chamber works, songs, solo piano pieces, film scores, and sacred and secular choral music. In the fall of 2013, his first Met-commissioned opera, Two Boys, had its U.S. premiere with the company. The text for Marnie was written by Nicholas Wright (b. 1940), a British dramatist born in South Africa, after the novel Marnie (1961) by prolific English author Winston Graham (1908–2003). PBS Free Streaming Met Opera “Marnie” February 1st

Music

Marnie’s score is simultaneously rooted in lyric tonality and highly innovative techniques. The work is, in a sense, a grand opera, with 18 soloists, a prominent role for the chorus, and large orchestral forces—including piano, celesta, piccolo trumpet, and offstage percussion. The opera’s unities of tradition and innovation reflect Muhly’s deep interest in both ancient musical forms and genuinely new expressions of them. The overall tone engages the modern listener rather than making an impression with dissonance, even at dramatic moments depicted with jagged sounds. PBS Free Streaming Met Opera “Marnie” February 1st
