Four-time Tony Award® winner Terrence McNally (Master Class, Love! Valour! Compassion!) adds another memorable cast of characters to MTC’s Stage I with the New York premiere of GOLDEN AGE. Tony winner Walter Bobbie (Chicago, Venus in Fur) directs.

It’s opening night of Vincenzo Bellini’s new opera I Puritani in Paris, and the Italian composer is determined to win the adulation of not only his audience, but his colleagues and rivals as well. When the curtain falls, will a thunderous ovation cement his prominence? Or has Bellini unwittingly composed his own swan song?

Blending 21st century language with the timeless beauty of 19th century bel canto opera, Terrence McNally’s new play portrays the final act of an artist whose desire for greatness has eclipsed all else.
