Winston Graham’s novel “Marnie” is already a major motion picture (Hitchcock did the honors, in 1964). Now it’s an opera, too. In Nico Muhly and Nicholas Wright’s version, the eponymous fraudster maintains an array of dazzling alter egos, clothed by the costume designer Arianne Philips and voiced by her own personal chorus, her Shadows. Isabel Leonard, a mezzo-soprano who can veer from exuberance to exasperation in the blink of an eye, stars in the Metropolitan Opera’s production, opening on Oct. 19.
