The Coronation of Poppea

Some forthcoming performances featuring music from The Coronation of Poppea:

The Coronation of Poppea

Lyric Opera’s bold re-imagining of Monteverdi’s Coronation of Poppea - a bloodthirsty baroque drama in which love triumphs, but at what cost?

This dangerous and sexy production tells the tale of the beautiful Poppea as she convinces Emperor Nero to abandon his wife, destroy his friends and crown her Empress. This is opera up close and personal.
With a cast of singing actors led by Rebecca Rashleigh in the title role, Nick Jones as Emperor Nero and Caroline Vercoe as his scorned Empress Ottavia.
This full-length bloodthirsty drama will be directed by Tyran Parke, leading an exceptional Melbourne creative team including Rob Sowinski, Bryn Cullen and Dann Barber.  Music Direction is by Lyric's Artistic Director Pat Miller, leading an eclectic ensemble fused of period and modern instruments. 

Sung in Italian with surtitles in English
Three hours, including one interval
