Barefoot Opera's new take on Monteverdi's classic tale of lust, power and tyranny.
SATURDAY 11th NOVEMBER, 7.30PM at St. Mary in the Castle, Hastings
Compelling as much as shocking, and featuring one of the most beautiful love duets ever written...
L’incoronazione di Poppea tells the tale of the beautiful Poppea, who manipulates her way to Emperor Nero’s throne, and Nero's consuming erotic obsession for her. The God of Love triumphs, but only time will tell whether all ends well.
With Barefoot Opera’s signature ensemble style, Jenny Miller’s direction and an international cast of brilliant young singers, Monterverdi’s powerful and morally ambivalent tale is brought to life with drama, passion and verve.
