Mata Hari, the archetypal “Femme Fatale” and historic exotic dancer, courtesan, and spy, who was executed for espionage during World War I.

It 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, returning from her post on the music staff of Houston Grand Opera, leads a combination of instruments that includes accordion and electric guitar.
