Three different approaches to the enigmatic mistress of Roman Emperor Nero – in one box: watch Poppea in two contrasting opera productions plus as a futuristic ballet performance.
DVD 1: The Coronation of Poppea
Norwegian National Opera (Staged by Ole Anders Tandberg)
The performance portrays the decadence of the late Roman Empire – with obvious parallels to our own times. It marked Ole Anders Tandberg’s debut with the Norwegian Opera & Ballet, and he certainly let the blood flow.
DVD 2: Poppea
Schwetzinger Festspiele 1993 (Staged by Michael Hampe)
This performance, faithful to the original, is musically arranged and conducted by René Jacobs, one of the world’s leading Baroque specialists.
DVD 3: POPPEA // POPPEA
Theaterhaus Stuttgart · Gauthier Dance (Choreography by Christian Spuck)
For the ballet "POPPEA // POPPEA", Martin Donner uses Monteverdi's compositions, which are scratched, cut up, and mixed by a DJ, giving the performance a futuristic ambience. Emma Ryott's costumes reflect the various characters and each character develops their own individual dance gestures which run through the story like leitmotifs.
