[Friday, April 10, 12:00pm, British Studies (5th floor of Norlin Library)] Performance Friday! featuring excerpts from CU Opera's production of L'incoronazione di Poppea, Monteverdi’s drama about sex, crime and realpolitik during the debauched reign of the Roman Emperor Nero, turning conventional morality on its head—virtue is punished and greed rewarded. The score soars but the sensual duet between Nero and his lover—eventually wife—Poppea, Pur ti miro, pur ti godo—meaning, “I gaze at you, I possess you”—is the pièce de résistance. Sung in Italian with English surtitles. This production will be styled after the hit Netflix realpolitik series 'House of Cards,' starring Kevin Spacey. Doors open at 11:30 for free lunch.
