About Mata Hari
Mata Hari was the archetypal “Femme Fatale.” An historic exotic dancer, courtesan, and spy, she was executed for espionage during World War I.
This modern opera premiered at New York’s Prototype Festival in January of 2017. This production retains many elements of the original production, including actress and dancer Tina Mitchell in the title role and librettist Paul Peers directing. Bay Area conductor Emily Senturia, after her conducting debuts at both Houston Grand Opera and Washington National Opera, leads a combination of instruments that includes accordion and electric guitar.
