18 Oct 2013: On October 21 Christopher Bolduc makes his Metropolitan Opera debut as Jake in Nico Muhly’s opera TWO BOYS. A hauntingly beautiful and dramatically chilling work, TWO BOYS marked the “auspicious operatic debut” (London Independent) of composer Nico Muhly when the piece premiered at English National Opera in 2011. The opera explores identity and desire in 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. Loosely inspired by real events, director Bartlett Sher’s production includes striking video projections by 59 Productions (Satyagraha, The Enchanted Island), while Muhly’s score—featuring lyrical vocal writing and “shimmeringly ecstatic choruses” (London Telegraph) —“finds an exciting new musical language” (Wall Street Journal) to capture the mysterious realm of cyberspace.
Performances are October 21, 25, 30 & November 2, 6, 9, and 14.
Conductor David Robertson leads the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and the cast includes Jennifer Zetlan, Caitlin Lynch, Alice Coote, Sandra Piques Eddy, Judith Forst, Paul Appleby, Christopher Bolduc and Keith Miller. The production is by Bartlett Sher.
