About this event


Having had two consecutive years of critical acclaim with several 4-star reviews and audience praise at the prestigious Grimeborn Opera Festival at the Arcola Theatre, Ensemble OrQuesta are delighted to be bringing one of their exciting baroque opera productions to the intimate setting of the Cockpit Theatre.


Marcio da Silva's sensual and daring minimalist production of Monteverdi's early 17th century opera L'Incoronazione di Poppea will be performed by a cast of talented up and coming singers, accompanied by the Ensemble OrQuesta Baroque.


The tense and dramatic plot revolves around the historical figure of the Emperor Nero and his lover Poppea, who persuades him to abandon his wife Ottavia and make her his Queen instead.


This is a potent political tale of love and lust, power, vengeance and death, where good does not in fact prevail in the end.


Ten singers, baroque violins, cello, lute, organ and harpsichord will unite in a thrilling baroque explosion!
