A revival of the Tour 2013 production, live from Glyndebourne's 2015 Festival to the big screen at Wiltshire Music Centre.
An award-winning production of a dark British masterpiece, Britten's extraordinarily tense and chilling treatment of this historic tale is explored in a brilliant production by Fiona Shaw, best known as an actress in films such as Harry Potter and TV series including True Blood.
Lucretia is a model of fidelity among Roman wives until the Etruscan prince Tarquinius, provoked by his Roman army comrades, gallops back to Rome to ruin her virtue.
Described as 'opera at its most nakedly powerful' by the Daily Telegraph, this production is conducted by Leo Hussain in his Festival debut, and performed by some of the most exciting British singers on stage today, including Christine Rice, Kate Royal, Allan Clayton and Duncan Rock.
