Character Study—Marnie and the Queen of the Night
Presented by Naomi Barrettara and Stephanie Pierson

Nico Muhly said in an interview that the title character of Marnie reminded him of Debussy’s Mélisande: “a woman who is both hunter and hunted.” In Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, the Queen of the Night is both hunter and hunted in a different way. Blurred lines between good, evil, truth, and power permeate both works, but do these characters fit the classic mold of the femme fatale? Join us as we explore all this and more in the third session.

This course has four sessions. To purchase all sessions of Opera Boot Camp: Femmes Fatales, please click here.

This session will be held in the Opera Learning Center, located on the 6th Floor of the Samuel B. and David Rose Building at Lincoln Center, 65th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue. For questions, please call the LCE Ticket Line at 212-769-7028, Monday-Friday 10am-4pm.
