About

‘Some of the most wonderful music in the world’ is how William Christie describes Monteverdi’s The Coronation of Poppea, noting in particular the opera's overriding humanism and interest in questions of morality and ambition. Performed by an exceptional cast of soloists working with a remarkable stage director, Jan Lawers, each of the work’s characters is vividly brought to life, accompanied by a reduced ensemble featuring a large continuo section essential for capturing the unique sound world of the composer. This acclaimed production was recorded in 2018 at the prestigious Salzburg Festival.
