Against the Grain Theatre is thrilled to present 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.
