THE RAPE OF LUCRETIA
Composed by Benjamin Britten
Libretto by Ronald Duncan, after the play by André Obey
Darya Zholnerova, student director
Robin Guarino, faculty advisor
William Langley, conductor
In ancient times, the city of Rome has fallen into depravity and it seems the only honorable woman who remains is Lucretia. The king’s son seethes with jealousy, determined to test Lucretia’s chastity. The events that ensue become a symbol of the regime’s oppression, sparking an uprising among the people. Featuring some of Britten’s most beautiful music, the opera conveys with intense passion the struggle between evil and redemption. Sung in English with supertitles.
