Mary Plazas to sing the Duchess in Powder Her Face for Irish National Opera and for Nevill Holt

Mary Plazas will reprise the role of the Duchess in in Antony MacDonald’s production of Powder Her Face next year. First seen at the Lyric Theatre, Belfast in January 2017 the production will be revived for performances on tour in Ireland with the newly formed Irish National Opera and then in the UK at Nevill Holt conducted by Nicolas Chalmers. Rupert Christiansen gave the production 5 stars “At the epicentre, is Mary Plazas as the Duchess. In a truly great piece of operatic acting, she makes this paper monster of egocentricity absurd yet pitiable in her delusions and humiliation, thus making moral and emotional sense of the entire opera.”
