One of the earliest operas ever written, The Coronation Of Poppea is coming to the youngest opera house in London, the King’s Head theatre.

Monteverdi’s tale of the triumphant adultery between Poppea and Roman Emperor Nero gets a radical treatment in Mark Ravenhill and Alex Silverman’s new version, with a new jazz-inspired orchestration and a world-class cast of singers.

The Coronation Of Poppea is directed by OperaUpClose Associate Director Mark Ravenhill, who makes his directorial debut with the company.
