The Coronation of Poppea

  • School for Creative and Performing Arts 108 West Central Parkway Cincinnati, OH, 45202 United States (map)

One of the first operas, Monteverdi’s 1642 Baroque masterpiece tells a dramatic story of passion and intrigue with some of the most transcendently beautiful music in all of opera. It’s presented here in a new production at SCPA’s intimate Corbett Theater under the direction of the “superbly imaginative” Zack Winokur (Parterre Box). A world-class cast, led by Grammy-nominated soprano Talise Trevigne and “vocally brilliant” countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo as Emperor Nero (The New York Times), joins the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and members of the early music ensemble Catacoustic Consort in realizing Monteverdi’s exquisite score.
