Don't miss The Metropolitan Opera premiere of the acclaimed young composer Nico Muhly's hauntingly beautiful new opera, Two Boys, which The New York Times called "a landmark in the career of an important artist" in its London premiere. In this timeless tale of intrigue, deceit, and betrayal (loosely inspired by real events), two boys engage in a dangerous masquerade with devastating results. Tony Award®-winning director Bartlett Sher's striking production captures the shadowy world of internet chat rooms — a mysterious realm of disguise and seduction. There are seven performances only of this Metropolitan Opera commission. Get your tickets today for the operatic event of the fall: October 21, 25, 30, November 2 matinee, 6, 9, 14
Nico Muhly sits down with Adam Gopnik, staff writer for The New Yorker, in an exclusive pre-curtain event for ticketholders to the October 25 performance. The two will discuss the creation of Two Boys, with musical illustrations by Muhly on piano. Space is limited so please send an E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to attend.
