Lee Pace to Play Vincenzo Bellini in Upcoming Play, ‘Golden Age’

Sep 27

It has been announced that Lee Pace will play Italian composer Vincenzo Bellini in the upcoming Terrence McNally play, Golden Age, directed by Tony-winner Walter Bobbie (Chicago). Manhattan Theatre Club will be hosting the limited engagement play at their off-Broadway venue, Stage I, with a December 4th opening night; previews start on November 13th. Others involved in the prestigious casting include Tony Award winner Richard Easton, Dierdre Friel, Coco Monroe, two-time Emmy and two-time Tony Award winner Bebe Neuwirth, Ethan Phillips, Lorenzo Pisoni, Will Rogers, and Eddie Kaye Thomas. Check out a summary of the show below:

It’s opening night of Vincenzo Bellini’s new opera 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, Terrence McNally’s new play, portrays the final act of an artist whose desire for greatness has eclipsed all else.

Tickets go on sale via Telecharge starting October 1st. Who’s planning on going?

  1. I wonder if this means he’ll have to skip the press junkets for the vampire movie. Somebody planned well…
