As some of you may know, Tacoma Opera's recent production of Benjamin Britten's The Rape of Lucretia was hit hard by the snowstorm -- two of the three scheduled performances were canceled. However, the company has managed to get the whole cast and orchestra together again for ONE special make-up performance -- soon!
 
I hope you can make it!
 
M.D. aka "Collatinus, A Roman General"

Notes:

First performed at Glyndbourne in England on 12 July 1946, The Rape of Lucretia is the first of several chamber operas Britten wrote during his distinguished career. According to Roman tradition, Lucretia, who died around 510 BC was a noblewoman in ancient Rome whose rape by Sextus Tarquinius, an Etruscan king’s son, was the cause of a rebellion that overthrew the Roman monarchy and led to the transition of Roman government from a kingdom to a republic. Britten takes this ancient Roman story and transforms it into a morality tale of misguided hubris and great human suffering, narrated by two compassionate storytellers, male and female. The work is one of Britten’s most intimate and moving works and is a masterpiece of the chamber opera genre
