Coronation of Poppea

Thursday 30 November, 2017 - Wednesday 6 December, 2017

Pinchgut Opera

Coronation of Poppea is a towering masterpiece of superbly crafted characterisation and heartbreaking beauty set to exquisite, sensuous music culminating in the famous duet ‘Pur ti miro’. The opera traces the fallout from the scandalous liaison between courtesan Poppea Sabina and Nero; Emperor, madman, murderer. Director Mark Gaal and Conductor Erin Helyard collaborate on their third Pinchgut production together, and lead an exemplary cast headed by Helen Sherman.
