Rome: 1st Century AD. Power. Passion. Corruption.
This summer, Trinity Laban brings an opera of force and power to Blackheath Halls. Based on real historical events from the notorious reign of Nero in Rome, Monteverdi tells the tale of Poppea and Nero in a world of power, ambition, lust, corruption and greed.
Monteverdi’s masterpiece was first performed in 1642, yet remains as relevant as ever with its very human emotions and glorious music. Don’t miss the chance to see this performance by Trinity Laban talent.
This performance will be sung in Italian with English surtitles.
Contains scenes of a sexual nature and moderate violence, recommended for 14+.
