The Rape of Lucretia - Dark Mofo

Friday 15, Saturday 16 June, 8pm
Sunday 17 June, 2pm
Theatre Royal, Hobart, Tasmania

After sold-out performances of The Sleeping Beauty in 2017, Victorian Opera returns to Dark Mofo with a taut and seething contemporary take on Benjamin Britten’s operatic retelling of an unforgivable crime in ancient Rome. Eight singers and a chamber ensemble enter a ritual circle carved out for a thorny tale of virtue and depravity. A co-production of Sydney Chamber Opera and Victorian Opera, featuring Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra.

Victorian Opera continues its thriving relationship with Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra with a one-night-only performance of the world’s greatest love story in an operatic retelling by French composer Charles Gounod.
