WHAT HAPPENED TO LUCRECE by Andrew Synnott

Wednesday, 14 October 2020, 8.00pm

A new opera commission by Wexford Festival Opera, composed by Andrew Synnott, based on 'The Rape of Lucrece' by William Shakespeare. Libretto by Alessandra Binucci and Rosetta Cucchi. Sung in English.

Composer and Artist-in-Residence, Andrew Synnott’s new opera commissioned by Wexford Festival Opera is based on the Shakespeare narrative poem, 'The Rape of Lucrece', about the legendary Roman noblewoman Lucretia.

Under the direction of Rosetta Cucchi, 'What Happened to Lucrece' is written for four singers and piano, and will be performed on three separate evenings. Each performance will have a different ending; one tragic, one farcical and one romantic. Viewers are invited to vote on their preferred ending.

Stream at 8pm daily on RTE.ie/Culture. Miss an episode? Catch up on RTÉ Player and on RTÉ Player’s exclusive Wexford Festival Opera pop-up channel.
