Nico Muhly’s Two Boys

Nico Muhly’s acclaimed new work, first seen at London’s English National Opera in 2011, has its U.S. premiere at the Met in the 2013–14 season, in a production directed by Bartlett Sher. The opera, loosely inspired by real events, 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. The New York Times called Two Boys “a landmark in the career of an important artist…a work of dark beauty.”
