Enter to Win Tickets! Monteverdi’s Coronation of Poppea Opens West Edge Opera’s 2013 Season 

When: Feb. 1-Jan. 3 2013
Nothing destroys an Empire like sex and blonde ambition!

Poppea is one of the earliest operas, but even in 1642, sensuality ruled the day. Emperor Nero can’t get his mind off the beautiful and sensual Poppea. He thinks about Poppea more than he thinks about his country and especially his empress, Ottavia. Monteverdi’s music is praised for its gorgeous melody and the humanity of its characters. It helped to redefine the boundaries of theatrical music. Noted Baroque singer Christine Brandes is Nero and the amazing Emma McNairy is Poppea.
