RARELY-SEEN MASTERPIECE | POWERFUL AND INTIMATE | SOARING LYRICAL SCORE

A devastating act of violence, and one woman’s decision to speak the truth—the story of Lucretia ignited a nation and has entranced artists like Shakespeare, Botticelli and more for centuries. Through Britten’s searing and intimate score, experience a legend of lust, power, and politics that resonates powerfully from ancient times to ours.
