What You'll Get


The descent from privileged heir into a spiral of madness is the focus of The Rake's Progress, the neo-classical opera by Igor Stravinsky, named "one of music's truly epochal innovators" by the All Music Guide. Young Tom Rakewell has his heart set on a simple life in the suburbs with his sweetheart Anne Trulove, but his plans change when slick Nick Shadow informs him that he's inherited a fortune. Now, pockets full, Tom ditches the simple things for the carnal delights of the city, where he gets lost in a world of vice and becomes enchanted with a bearded showgirl named Baba the Turk. As the story unfolds the question will build: Has Tom traded in true love for a dance with the devil? This Harvard College Opera Society production of The Rake's Progress offers a unique take on this classic tale, using the inspiration of Stravinsky's whimsical score and David Lynch's neo-noir classic Blue Velvet to set the journey in a seemingly barren industrial plant that transforms before your eyes -- through the use of clever lighting and theatrical magic -- into a fantastical dream ... or, rather, a nightmare.

Event Description:

This show is approximately two hours and 30 minutes long, including one 15-minute intermission.
