Based on Winston Graham’s gripping 1961 novel of intrigue and deception, Nico Muhly’s new opera had its United States premiere at the Met during the 2018–19 season. In this performance from the Met’s series of Live in HD series of cinema transmissions, mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard stars in the elusive title role, a young con woman who employs myriad false identities until she meets her match in the imperious Mark Rutland, sung by baritone Christopher Maltman. Director Michael Mayer’s cinematic production bursts to life in vivid color and features ravishing, 60s-inspired costumes by Oscar-nominated designer and stylist Arianne Phillips. Robert Spano conducts an accomplished cast, which also features soprano Janis Kelly, mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves, and countertenor Iestyn Davies.
