Add to Calendar 15-02-2013 23-02-2013 15 New York City Opera's Powder Her Face Inspired by the real-life sex scandal that rocked Britain in the early 60s, English composer Thomas Ades' 1995 chamber opera returns to BAM 15 years after its New York premiere at the BAM Majestic Theater (now the BAM Harvey Theater). In this new production from New York City Opera, director Jay Scheib presents his genre-defying vision, integrating technology and daring physicality to this modern opera that plays off the public's obsession with the tabloid controversy surrounding a series of Polaroid photos of Margaret Campbell, Duchess of Argyll, dubbed the "Dirty Duchess." Through the prism of Campbell's life story, and featuring Phillip Hensher's libretto, Powder Her Face explores the intersection of gender, politics, and power. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=128817 Brooklyn Academy of Music true DD/MM/YYYY
