Show Full Description

Monteverdi’s surprising operatic swan song, The Coronation of Poppea, is a celebration of carnal love and ambition triumphing at the expense of reason and morality. John Eliot Gardiner and the Monteverdi Choir bring this early opera to life in a semi-staged performance, including the earliest version of a great diva scena by the self-proclaimed “despised queen,” Ottavia.

 

This performance is also a part of the White Light Festival.
