Sex, lies and murder collide in Monteverdi s sensual masterpiece of baroque opera, set against the fiery backdrop of the corrupt and debauched city of Rome. The battle between desire and virtue is portrayed in some of the most beautiful music ever written for the human voice. As her husband approaches, Poppea lies in an adulterous bed with the Emperor Nero. Her relentless ambition, feeding on Nero s power and wealth, sets in motion a series of events that will cast all around her into a sea of immorality and violence. New Production. Sung in English
