Rape of Lucretia at Dark Mofo


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."

A co-production of Sydney Chamber Opera and Victorian Opera Sydney 2017 season presented by Sydney Chamber Opera and Carriageworks.
