OPERA: Frau Margot: Film noir meets opera. Atmospheric and enigmatic, Frau Margot is the opera that Hitchcock would have wanted to direct. In Amsterdam of 1938, the widow of a famous composer is reluctant to allow another composer to complete her late husband’s unfinished opera until she has conducted a séance to ask his permission. Trust no one. American composer Thomas Pasatieri returns to opera after scoring many Hollywood films. Frau Margot is “a score of a voluptuous splendor that suggests Klimt’s gilded paintings set to music… it has all the markings of a masterpiece.” (Wes Blomster, operatoday.com) Sung in the original English with English subtitles. Moores Opera Center (2 cards)
