      • Two Boys - Met Opera Trailer

        01:46

        from 59 Productions / Added

        A teenage boy is stabbed. An older boy is caught on CCTV leaving the scene. An open-and-shut case, it would seem. But, as Detective Inspector Anne Strawson investigates the older boy's story, she uncovers a bizarre nexus of chatroom meetings, mysterious internet identities, supposed spy rings and disturbing cybersex, leading to a stunning conclusion. Loosely inspired by actual events that occurred in an English industrial city, Nico Muhly's new opera is a cautionary tale of the dark side of the internet. --- This 90 second video, produced by 59 Productions, was used during the live broadcast of the Met Opera's 2012/14 season launch, and is being used to promote the opera worldwide. The opera itself, featuring animation and projection design by 59 Productions, has its Met premiere on the 22nd October 2013. --- Video designers: Leo Warner & Mark Grimmer (59 Productions) Animation director: Nicol Scott (59 Productions) In Memoriam: Peter James Stenhouse (animation director for the original London production)

            **To buy or rent the film, please go to vimeo.com/ondemand/allbecamegolden All Became Golden is a film and audiovisual record from Essie Jain, conceived by Jain and director Natalie Johns with music arranged by Nico Muhly. In this innovative project, British singer-songwriter Jain's spare and elegant songs are invigorated by Muhly’s tailored arrangements and the backing of a classical orchestra. The film documents the group as they convene to simultaneously rehearse, perform and record the album, allowing a rare glimpse of the joy, risk, generosity and blind faith inherent in acts of creative collaboration. All Became Golden sees Jain moving past the angst and inwardness of her younger self, toward interpretations that reflect her current state of mind: joyful, forward-looking and expansive. Themes of gratitude and empowerment, of saying yes instead of no, of placing trust in yourself and the universe are articulated in Jain’s timeless songs, which comprise both new and older original material, as well as a cover of Dire Straits’ “Why Worry.” The songs were recorded at the DiMenna Center for Classical Music by Grammy-winning recording engineer Justin Guip of Levon Helm Studios and, with a view to this realizing the format of the first audio visual record, Emmy-winning, Grammy-nominated music engineer Bob Clearmountain (Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones) mixed the entire album to edited performances for each song. Continuing on in the spirit of true independence that gave birth to the film, Martin Mills (Beggars Banquet, 4AD, Matador, Rough Trade) narrates the opening and end of the film. http://essiejain.com facebook.com/essiejainmusic https://twitter.com/EssieJain
