The 13th season of The Met: Live in HD, presented by the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts, continues with “Marnie,” at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 10, at the Newport Performing Arts Center, 777 W Olive St. The event is hosted locally by Kay Moxness.
Composer Nico Muhly unveils his second new opera for the Met with this gripping reimagining of Winston Graham’s novel, set in the 1959, 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.
The Metropolitan Opera Live in HD series is made possible by a grant from the Neubauer Family Foundation. OCCA thanks the Jeannette B. Hofer Fund at the Oregon Community Foundation, the City of Newport, season benefactors Bill and JoAnn Barton, opera hosts, OCCA members and local opera fans for their continuing support.
