Monteverdi: L'Incoronazione di Poppea

2008 NR

Australian soprano Danielle de Niese continues to take the opera world by storm, as demonstrated in this dramatic and beautifully sung performance of the title character in Claudio Monteverdi's opera set in ancient Rome. Alice Coote sings the role of Nero, and Robert Carsen provides a modern staging for this production that features Emmanuelle Haïm conducting the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.
