Britten at Dark Mofo

Sydney Chamber Opera/Victorian Opera/Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra

Directed by Kip Williams

Sex and power, fractured through time: a taut and seething contemporary take on Benjamin Britten’s operatic retelling of an unforgivable crime in ancient Rome. Eight singers and a chamber ensemble enter a ritual circle carved out for a thorny tale of virtue and depravity. Jane performs the role of Lucia.
