The Coronation of Poppea

Orchestra of the Norwegian National Opera / Alessandro de Marchi

The Coronation of Poppea was the début production from critically acclaimed stage director Ole Anders Tandberg in the Norwegian Opera & Ballet, and he lets blood flow. TV directors Anja Stabell and Stein-Roger Bull reinforces the impact by letting blood’s bright color compete against black and white images. Poppea like you’ve never seen it before!

Special packaging with a high quality slipcase.

At the centre of events is the power-crazed Poppea. She aspires to the top level of the hierarchy and seduces Emperor Nero. He is totally captivated by Poppea and does everything possible to marry her, even if it leads to murder. A classic drama unfolds, where the struggle for power and riches paints an unattractive portrait of humankind. In this respect not much has changed since the opera was written 365 years ago.

The performance portrays the decadence of the late Roman Empire – with obvious parallels to our own times. But it all comes together towards the end in one of the loveliest duets ever composed: “Pur Ti Miro”. With a top level cast.

“Coronation of Poppea is opera at its best... voluptuous baroque music and bloody, powerful drama.“ NRK
