Grimeborn Opera at Arcola Theatre

In Rome, 510 BC, Lucretia is sought out in the night by the prince Tarquinius. In Dalston, 2018 AD, a man and a woman invite you to watch a re-enactment. Benjamin Britten coined the phrase ‘chamber opera’ to describe his haunting and provocative masterwork, The Rape of Lucretia.

Returning to Grimeborn after her revelatory productions of Madama Butterfly and Tosca, rising star Julia Burbach directs a daring new staging, turning the lens on the representation of women from ancient myths to the #MeToo movement
