  1. L'incoronazione di Poppea, 'The Coronation of Poppea' - Claudio Monteverdi

A one-off production of Barefoot Opera’s new take on Monteverdi’s classic tale of lust, power and tyranny. L’incoronazione di Poppea, often thought to be Monteverdi’s operatic masterpiece, tells the tale of the beautiful Poppea, who manipulates her way to Emperor Nero’s throne, and Nero's consuming erotic obsession for her. Taking place during the 450th anniversary celebrations of Monteverdi’s birth, director Jenny Miller has been motivated to bring this opera to singers and audiences alike.

With Barefoot Opera’s characteristic ensemble style, Monterverdi’s powerful and morally ambivalent tale is brought to life with physical theatre, multi-layered story-telling and music. Increasingly known for their fresh, energetic ensemble style productions, Barefoot Opera – ‘Hastings and St. Leonard’s very own opera company’ - have created a production that promises to be as compelling as it is shocking.

Lucilla Graham, Sara Parker and Matthew Paine are amongst an international cast including several young professional singers who will perform with a small, intimate ensemble of musicians, led by Lesley Anne Sammons, (Musical Director/keyboards) and including Lucy Mulgan on double bass.
