Nico Muhly Introduces An Opera For A New Age

Composer Nico Muhly and The Metropolitan Opera in NY unveiled the trailer for upcoming production of Two Boys – Muhly’s operatic debut which first premiered at the English National Opera in 2011.
A hauntingly beautiful and dramatically chilling work reminiscent of a “Catfish” dark-style narrative, Two Boys tells the story of a detective investigating the stabbing of one teenage boy by another and the tangled, dark world of cyberspace behind it. Loosely inspired by real events, director Bartlett Sher’s production includes striking video projections by 59 Productions (“Satyagraha,” and the high production-value opera “The Enchanted Island”), while Muhly’s score—featuring lyrical vocal writing provide an almost eerie revealing to the hidden truths of the internet.


Two Boys will be starting at the MET Opera in NY starting in October.  For more information, go to
