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. 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.
Venue Description: The Met Opera is a vibrant home for the most creative and talented artists from around the world. Longtime musical director James Levine is credited with having created one of opera's finest orchestras and choruses.
