THE RAPE OF LUCRETIA

CARRIAGEWORKS AND SYDNEY CHAMBER OPERA PRESENT

THE RAPE OF LUCRETIA

SYDNEY CHAMBER OPERA

Benjamin Britten’s two-act chamber opera, The Rape of Lucretia, starts with an unforgivable crime and a hollow prayer. First performed in 1946, it was a taut and intimate telling of the Roman tale. Now, in a co-production with Victorian Opera, the Sydney Chamber Opera present this pioneering and tragic work to Sydney audiences for the first time this century.

Director: Sydney Theatre Company Artistic Director Kip Williams
Associate Director and Costume Design: Elizabeth Gadsby
Set Design: David Fleischer
Lighting: Damien Cooper

Conducted by SCO Artistic Director Jack Symonds, the production stars Mezzo Soprano Anna Dowsley in the title role of Lucretia, whose violation at the hands of the tyrant Tarquinius highlights the depravity of humanity.
