The Metropolitan Opera: Two Boys with Nico Muhly

Monday, October 14, 2013 @ 7:30 pm

Composer Nico Muhly and Met Opera stars preview Two Boys prior to its U.S. premiere. The opera explores the shadowy world of the Internet as a detective investigates the stabbing of one teenage boy by another and discovers a tangled web of online intrigue. Met General Manager Peter Gelb moderates a discussion with Muhly, director Bartlett Sher, and conductor David Robertson. Met stars Alice Coote, Paul Appleby, and Sandra Piques Eddy perform excerpts from the opera.
