Monteverdi's Coronation of Poppea

Celebrating 450 years since the birth of Monteverdi, Pinchgut Opera performed one of the greatest operas of all time, Coronation of Poppea. 

Coronation of Poppea charts the consuming erotic obsession of the Emperor Nero for the beautiful Poppea Sabina. Ruthlessly sweeping aside anyone who stands in the way of their union - including Nero's wife Octavia and the poet and philosopher Seneca - Nero and Poppea triumph over all their opponents and rejoice in one of the most sensuous and exquisitely beautiful duets, "Pur ti miro".
