Heading: A video-pop version of the opera by Monteverdi
29 May 2012
Théâtre du Châtelet
A video-pop version of the opera by Monteverdi
After The Incoronazione di Poppea by Claudio Monteverdi
The dramatic structure of the work of Busenello, librettist of the opera Monteverdi's original, is narrowed down by the playwright Ian Burton to focus attention on actions that constitute the heart of the plot. The composer Michael Torke, inspired by jazz and minimalism, brings the music closer to our modern-rock operas. This adaptation is performed by a rock band, to give an electric tone to the harmonies of Monteverdi, promoted by real stars of rock and pop scene.
