A safecracking secretary with dark secrets; an industrialist blackmailer; his sinister, scarred brother; their moms. Marnie is full of characters who are impeccably dressed but otherwise reprehensible, which makes them all sort of perfect for an opera. Composed by Providence-raised Wheeler grad Nico Muhly, this accessible and very eerie opera is perhaps even more intense than the Alfred Hitchcock movie that inspired it. (Technically, the movie and the opera are both based on the same novel, though it was the movie that inspired the production.) Everyone looks and sounds gorgeous, and the multiple twists, though hinted at throughout, are nonetheless shocking when revealed. I really got sucked into the second act. 1pm on a Wednesday is awkward timing, but it’s probably your only chance to catch this on a big screen.
