2Boys @ LPR

The Met is getting hip and stopping in at (Le) Poisson Rouge in NY tomorrow night for a concert with Nico Muhly, composer of next season’s newly commissioned opera Two Boys.  The concert will be live streamed on NPR (and maybe on LPR’s site?).  The program is sort of vague, but will apparently include a few excerpts from the opera, other works by Muhly, and works that inspire him (which apparently includes lots of 17th century music, so I approve).

Two Boys was commissioned by the Met but premiered by English National Opera as a co-production in 2011, so we have some stuff to go on, like this NY Times Review or this ENO trailer:

But still sort of mysterious, so this concert should be a good primer…
