A baroque explosion of sex, power, love & death

Review this show

Overview

*Performed in Italian with English Surtitles

Marcio da Silva’s sensual and daring minimalist production of Monteverdi’s early 17th century opera L’Incoronazione di Poppea will be performed by a cast of talented up and coming singers, accompanied by the Ensemble OrQuesta Baroque. The tense and dramatic plot revolves around the historical figure of the Emperor Nero and his lover Poppea, who persuades him to abandon his wife Ottavia and make her his Queen instead. This is a potent political tale of love and lust, power, vengeance and death, where good does not in fact prevail in the end.

Performances will be in Italian with English surtitles, and will take place on 30th, 31st January and 1st February, at 7:30pm. Ten singers, baroque violins, cello, lute, organ and harpsichord will unite in a thrilling baroque explosion!
