Met and ENO present Nico Muhly world premiere
Date published: Wed 17 Feb 2010
The Metropolitan Opera and English National Opera (ENO) will co-produce a world premiere production of composer Nico Muhly's first opera. With a libretto by Craig Lucas, the opera is a fictionalised story based on a true story in which a teenager attempts to arrange his own murder via the internet. The new production, directed by Bartlett Sher, will debut at the ENO's London Coliseum in June 2011 and be presented during the Met's 2013-14 season. The creative team includes Sher's longtime collaborators set designer Michael Yeargan and costume designer Catherine Zuber, as well as the acclaimed London-based video designers Fifty Nine Productions and lighting designer Donald Holder.
