Opera students from DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama are set to perform the gripping story of Poppea, one of the greatest social climbers of her era, which led her from small town society to the imperial throne of Rome. Out of her notorious alliance with the Emperor Nero is born a tale of lust, betrayal and intrigue, played out in scenes from Monteverdi's operatic masterpiece ‘L'incoronazione di Poppea’. 

The drama will unfold across two Sunday afternoon performances (3pm) at the Hugh Lane Gallery: 22 February and 1 March. Admission is free. 

Stage Director: Jennifer Hamilton. Associate Director: Andrea Basquille. Music Director: Killian Farrell.
