The Opera Academy performs L’incoronazione di Poppea

By Claudio Monteverdi

This production is no longer available - see our current repertoire here.

True to tradition, the Royal Danish Theatre Opera Academy stages a spring performance at Takkelloftet where this season audiences can look forward to a drama in which being righteous doesn’t pay – quite the contrary.

L’incoronazione di Poppea relates the story of Emperor Nero’s mistress, who against accepted custom and by means of less-than-righteous roads is crowned Empress. This is a tale of thirst for power in which the virtuous remain the victims of the game.

Performed in Italian with Danish supertitles.


Expected duration: 2 hours and 30 minutes
