The Coronation of Poppea
Introduced by Petroc Treawny and beginning with a behind-the-scenes feature on the opera and its production. Following their success with Orfeo, conductor Laurence Cummings and director
Chen Shi-Zheng team up at ENO once again for Monteverdi's final opera, containing some of the composer's most sensual music. Poppea is the mistress of Emperor Nero, whom she is easily able to manipulate. She wants the power of the throne, and the only thing standing in her way is Nero's wife Ottavia. Nero needs little encouragement to assist Poppea in achieving her goal.
English National Opera Orchestra, director Laurence Cummings (harpsichord)
