Nigredo Hotel stars baritone Tyler Duncan and soprano Sarah Vardy, with stage direction by Alan Corbishley, lighting and sets by John Webber, costumes by Barbara Clayden - and inspiration from Carl Jung.
With music by Nic Gotham, and libretto by Ann- Marie MacDonald, it is the story of an encounter between an beautiful buy crazed woman who runs a shoddy hotel, and a brain surgeon who takes refuge there after he crashes his car. It is also brilliant combat between two of the most unusual characters in 20th century opera. Psychological thriller, mystery story, sarcastic and sweet, witty and strange, it is like nothing City Opera Vancouver has done before.
The music? Strong, driving and tonal, jazz-inflected and satirical, beautifully conceived for the human voice, and all backed by a four-player combo.
