English Touring Opera present: The Coronation of Poppea


This event has passed.

With music and characterisation which still feel strikingly modern, Monteverdi’s darkly entertaining depiction of violence and intrigue at the court of the Emperor Nero was one of the first operatic masterpieces.

Robin Norton-Hale directs this new production, with multi-genre musician and composer Yshani Perinpanayagam as conductor and arranger and a new English translation of the libretto from poet and classicist Helen Eastman.

Performed in English with English subtitles.
