A major premiere at the Opéra National du Capitole de Toulouse, which, from 23 to 30 May 2023, is bringing a great masterpiece by Britten into its repertoire. The Rape of Lucretia, a pocket opera created in 1946 at the Glyndebourne Festival, is a poignant work that will be directed by Anne Delbée and conducted by Marius Stieghorst with the Orchestre national du Capitole. Alongside Agnieszka Rehlis (Lucretia) and Duncan Rock (Tarquinius), Cyrille Dubois, the male chorus of the tragedy, gives the line to Marie-Laure Garnier. The soprano, an excellent recitalist but still too rare on the opera stage, performs as the female chorus. An opportunity not to be missed!
