Poppea Project with OAE

Project Summary

Part of Glyndebourne’s long-standing partnership with Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment devising, this project involved composing and singing inspired by Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea. Participants were made up of drama and music students from years 10 & 11 from secondary schools and youth groups in Brighton & Hove and London.

The project resulted in the recording of a new film, based on Poppea, devised by the participants which was subsequently screened before the 2008 BBC Prom of L’incoronazione di Poppea.
