A Night at the Opera presents opera-related items from the Library of Congress Music Division, including manuscript and printed scores, librettos, photographs, and set designs dating from the late-eighteenth century through the beginning of the twentieth century. The exhibit also commemorates the bicentennials of opera composers Giuseppe Verdi and Richard Wagner, both born in 1813.
Directed by Pam MacKinnon (“Clybourne Park,” “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”), and featuring Lois Smith, “Marjorie Prime” asks exquisite questions about the difference between a life lived and a life remembered in this compassionate, haunting drama.
Marjorie is a clever, wry woman who, at age 85, finds that her memory is failing. She is living out her days at an assisted living facility where she is frequently visited by her anxious, quick-witted daughter, Tess, and her kind, easygoing son-in-law, Jon. With the urging of Jon and the facility and despite Tess’ misgivings, a mysterious young man, Walter, joins the group with the hope that he can help reverse Marjorie’s decline.
In the giddy, glitzy world of the Roaring Twenties, a naive young man falls head over heels for a glamorous party girl. Together they trade the fast life for an idyllic love nest far from the city…until an unexpected visitor threatens to tear them apart.
