Tacoma Opera - The Rape of Lucretia by Benjamin Britten


Tacoma Opera presents Benjamin Britten’s historic opera, The Rape of Lucretia, Sunday, April 7th, at Theatre on the Square at 2pm. About The Rape of Lucretia: Benjamin Britten’s extraordinary and rarely-performed opera, The Rape of Lucretia, is serious and tragic chamber opera set in ancient Roman times, based on a true story that is not only timeless, but is even more timely and current today in 2018, during the "Me Too" movement. Britten tells this story with such compassion and understanding for the characters, that audiences are drawn into the story in a way that moves one to the core of one's being. The Rape of Lucretia is not at all graphic or gory by today's Hollywood standards, but rather, it is a thought provoking, psychological retelling of a true and tragic story.
