Summer opera: Monteverdi in Blackheath

Trinity Laban - L'Incoronazion di Poppea
Trinity Laban's Summer opera this year is a contribution to the celebrations for the 450th anniversary of Claudio Monteverdi's birth. Monteverdi's L'incoronazione di Poppea is being staged by Trinity Laban at Blackheath Halls from 5 July to 8 July 2017. The opera will be directed by Harry Fehr, directing his first Monteverdi opera, and conducted by Nicholas Kramer, Trinity Laban Associate Conductor who conducted Trinity Laban's staging of Handel's Belshazzar in 2014.

The cast will be made up of current Trinity Laban students, and alumni of previous productions have included Nardus Williams (who made her Opera Holland Park debut this Summer, see my review) and Ferrier Award winner James Newby.

Full details from the Trinity Laban website.
