The Coronation of Poppea

Lust triumphs over virtue in one of the world’s first great operas. Poppea is the lover of Roman emperor Nero, and she’s determined to become empress. When a plan to get rid of Poppea backfires, the schemers are sentenced to exile, and Poppea and Nero celebrate their marriage with one of opera’s most beloved duets.
This new and original Florentine production will be set in the time of Monteverdi and will feature exciting Florentine debut artists and an authentic Baroque instrument ensemble.

Sung in Italian with projected English supertitles.
