City Opera Vancouver Presents Nigredo Hotel
September 20, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - September 22, 2018 @ 10:00 pm$22.25
City Opera Vancouver presents the astonishing and macabre operatic thriller, Nigredo Hotel, on September 20 – 22, 2018 at 8pm at The Cultch Historic Theatre.
The one-act chamber opera directed by Alan Corbishley, with music by Nic Gotham and libretto by distinguished Canadian author and playwright Ann-Marie MacDonald, tells the tale of an encounter between a beautiful but crazed hotelier and a brain surgeon who seeks refuge after a traumatic car accident. Internationally renowned opera stars Tyler Duncan and Sarah Vardy will perform a brilliant Jungian-inspired combat, backed by a four-player jazz combo. MacDonald’s mysterious libretto and Gotham’s haunting score result in a compelling, comedic, and dramatic work with a brooding quality of film noir that will keep audience members on the edge of their seats.
