Daughter. Liar. Wife. Thief.
English National Opera,
She has been running for so long, no one knows the real Marnie, least of all herself.
Marnie is a compelling psychological thriller set in England during the late 1950s. A young woman makes her way through life by embezzling from her employers, before she moves on and changes her identity. When her current boss Mark Rutland catches her red-handed, he blackmails her into a loveless marriage. Marnie is left with no choice but to confront the hidden trauma from her past.
After opening at the English National Opera, London in November 2017, the production made its American premiere in October 2018 at the Metropolitan Opera, New York, with mezzo soprano Isabel Leonard playing the role of Marnie.
