The Coronation of Poppea – Saturday, March 30, 2019

Lust triumphs over virtue in one of the world’s first great operas.

Poppea is the lover of Roman Emperor Nerone, and she’s determined to become empress. But what about Nerone’s wife, Ottavia? When a plan to get rid of Poppea backfires, the schemers are sentenced to exile, and Poppea and Nerone celebrate their marriage with one of opera’s most beloved duets. This new and original Florentine production will feature exciting Florentine debut artists and an authentic Baroque instrument ensemble. Learn more.

Sung in Italian with projected English supertitles.
