This week, CCM proudly presents The Rape of Lucretia (1946). Virtue is threatened by corruption in this haunting chamber opera. In ancient times, the city of Rome has fallen into depravity and it seems the only honorable woman who remains is Lucretia. The king’s son seethes with jealousy, determined to test Lucretia’s chastity. The events that ensue become a symbol of the regime’s oppression, sparking an uprising among the people. Featuring some of Britten’s most beautiful music, the opera conveys with intense passion the struggle between evil and redemption. Sung in English with supertitles.

Tickets: $26-$28 general admission, $15-$17 student tickets.

Performance dates: Feb. 11-14, 2010.

CCM gratefully acknowledges the support of Macy’s, Season Design Sponsor.
