Description Monteverdi's extraordinary operatic endeavour,The Coronation of Poppea, depicts a ruthless,ambitious woman determined to marry a maniacal emperor in an opera in which evil truly triumphs over good. It features brilliant young Australian countertenor David Hansen as the infatuated Nero and Tiffany Speight as the irresistible Poppea, whose charms and ambition propel her inexorably towards the throne.
