Written and directed by Michael Sturminger, The Infernal Comedy will play a four-performance run through Nov. 19 in the Gilman Opera House. It is presented as part of BAM's Next Wave Festival.
Based on an idea by Birgit Hutter and Martin Haselböck, the production, which first debuted in Los Angeles in 2008 and has since toured the globe, features costumes by Birgit Hutter.
The play includes arias by Gluck, Mozart, Vivaldi, Beethoven, Haydn and more. It features the Orchester Wiener Akademie.
Joining Malkovich are sopranos Bernarda Bobro, Aleksandra Zamojska, Laura Aikin, Louise Fribo and Marie Arnet.
