University Opera: Monteverdi’s The Coronation of Poppea
Friday, November 16, 2018
Opera’s earliest masterpiece, Monteverdi’s The Coronation of Poppea (1643), takes us to a world where virtue is punished and ruthlessness and ambition are rewarded in a republic in which the head of state behaves very badly. This compelling drama is filled with stunningly gorgeous music, features a large cast of UW-Madison students accompanied by an ensemble of authentic period instruments. David Ronis, director.
Adults $25; seniors $20; students $10
