1888, Swedish playwright August Strindberg created an unprecedented scandal with the first production of his play, Miss Julie, a hallmark of naturalistic theatre. With scrutinizing detail, Strindberg tells the tale of two servants and their mistress as they grapple with the complexities of desire, ambition and inevitable loss. This is the story that has been adapted into one of the great chamber operas of the 21st century. Artistic & General Director Matthew Jocelyn directs this North American premiere of a work by Belgian composer Philippe Boesmans, recognized internationally as one of the greatest opera composers of our times.
