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.

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.
