Summary
"Love conqures all--ruthlessly and irresistibly--as Emperor Nero and his mistress Poppea remove the obstacles to their union. ... [This] production, with its suggestions of a giant game of chess, puts the opera's potent blend of sex and politics in a context that sets ancient against modern--just as the action juxtaposes scurrilous comedy and stark drama"--Container
