A castle deserted. A story of desire and triumph on the brink of ruin and despair. A pocket of suspended time, measured out in sleepless, dreaming footsteps.


Written and performed by the Merz Trio, Those Secret Eyes revisits the story of Lady Macbeth through a combination of chamber performance, spoken text, and dance. Featuring original movement work from dance soloist Caroline Copeland (Lady Macbeth) and text from William Shakespeare, alongside a musical program of works by Brahms, Schumann, Verdi, Charlotte Bray, and Johannes Maria Staud.

Those Secret Eyes premiered before a sold out audience at the Kosciuszko Foundation in December, 2018. In 2019-2020, the show will also premiere at the Flynn Space in Burlington, VT, and at the Sheen Center in New York City.
