THE CORONATION OF POPPEA (15-22 JULY)
PRESENTED BY LYRIC OPERA OF MELBOURNE
The might of Rome is no match for the dangerous power of passion.
This July, be transported by Lyric’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.
Performed in the intimacy of Chapel Off Chapel this is opera up close and personal. Think House of Cards meets Game of Thrones in a hipster pop up bar with a seriously old school soundtrack, this opera will get under your skin.
To be sung in Italian with surtitles in English.
This performance contains violent themes.
