Halifax Summer Opera Festival–L’Incoronazione di Poppea

    August 3, 2018 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm America/Toronto Timezone
    David Mack. Murray Studio Theatre
    6101 University Ave, Halifax, NS B3H 1W8

    Monteverdi’s The Coronation of Poppea is one of the milestones in operatic history, and the first work to be based on the lives of real historical figures rather than the gods and goddesses of mythology who peopled earlier scenarios. Our modern noir production brings these morally ambiguous characters to vivid life, in a wonderfully intimate venue. With live musicians, wonderful young singers and some of the most beautiful music ever written, this will be an extraordinary event.

    In Italian, with projected English translations. Fully-staged and costumed and accompanied by keyboard and cello continuo.

    These performances feature talented young singers from across Canada and the United States in town for the 14th annual Halifax Summer Opera Festival, a competitive opera training program. This is an opportunity to hear first class young singers in an intimate venue.
