Columbia University New Opera Workshop

La Lucrezia/Venus & Adonis

The Columbia University New Opera Workshop​ is pleased to present its first full-staged opera production: a double bill of Baroque works. Handel​'s "La Lucrezia" is a searing retelling of the rape of Lucretia and features one of Handel's most devastating scores. Though normally performed in concert form, "Lucrezia" will be a fully staged performance. It is paired with John Blow's pivotal "Venus & Adonis." Taken from an episode of Ovid​'s Metamorphoses​, the mythical lovers enter a game that quickly turns tragic. Together, these works reflect on the abuse and adversity that can affect even the most intimate and caring of relationships.

*N.B. - This production contains graphic references to sexual assault and depictions of violence.
