The New York Times has featured Robert Spano's Metropolitan Opera conducting debut in its Fall Arts Preview. Spano will conduct the seven performances in total, with the closing night performance on November 10 aired live in HD:
‘MARNIE’ Based on the Winston Graham page-turner that also inspired Hitchcock’s film, Nico Muhly’s new opera about a psychologically damaged young woman who compulsively changes her identity is streamlined and atmospheric without being truly dramatic. Isabel Leonard and Christopher Maltman star opposite the countertenor Iestyn Davies, who also appears in recital at Carnegie Hall in May. Robert Spano conducts; Michael Mayer directs. (Ever prolific, Mr. Muhly has also written premieres for the Tallis Scholars, at the Miller Theater in December, and for Trinity Wall Street, in February.) Opens Oct. 19; metopera.org.
