Bluebeard's Castle

The Gothic Thriller Retold

Composed by: Béla Bartók

Libretto by: Daisy Evans

Starring: Gerald Finley, Baritone

Language: English

Running Time: 60 Minutes

A haunting reimagining of one of the greatest operas of the 20th century.

Our second show of this season will be a contemporary retelling of Bluebeard’s Castle by Béla Bartók, starring Canadian operatic superstar Gerald Finley.

This radical retelling, originally produced by the ground-breaking opera company Theatre of Sound in London, England, features a new English libretto and orchestral arrangement, reframing the piece as a love story between a long-married couple living with dementia.

Presented at the Fleck Dance Theatre, this gothic horror story becomes an intimate and poignant operatic experience and marks our first live production since 2020.*
