THE STORY: 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, GOLDEN AGE portrays the final act of an artist whose desire for greatness has eclipsed all else.

 

"...cunningly made, genuinely moving and-surprise of surprises-entirely accessible to those playgoers whose knowledge of opera begins and ends with Bugs Bunny...This is Mr. McNally's best play in years-maybe ever." — Wall Street Journal.

 

"Amid arias, mad scenes, catfights and swoons, enough opera lore to keep aficionados arguing long into the night." — NY Times.

 

"Illuminating and mischievously humorous. A fascinating glimpse of the passions and piques of top-notch performers as they struggle to get through the pressure-cooker nerves of a major opening-night performance." — Associated Press.

 

"Terrence McNally loves opera and knows how to transfer his passion to theater audiences." — NY Newsday.

 

"Pleasures abound in GOLDEN AGE, a charming and passionate love story." -Huffington Post.
