The crime that defined an era
Lina González-Granados, LA Opera's dynamic new Resident Conductor, leads a concert performance of Britten’s haunting chamber opera, starring the brilliant singers of the company's Domingo-Colburn-Stein Young Artist Program, including mezzo-soprano Sarah Saturnino as Lucretia.
In ancient Rome, Lucretia’s husband is away, assigned to a military post outside the city. When the Prince of Rome knocks at her door, she’s honor-bound to welcome him into her home, unaware that her unexpected guest is driven by a truly despicable impulse. The brutal assault will rattle the foundations of the kingdom and incite the overthrow of a dynasty.
