North Norfolk Chamber Opera is delighted to present Monteverdi’s opera from 1642, The Coronation of Poppea.

Monteverdi composed his late masterpiece with church performance in mind, and reflecting this, our performances will take place in St. Margaret’s Church, Cley-Next-the-Sea on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 12th, 13th and 14th May at 7pm.

Tickets are just £15 and can be booked here: “Booking with Eventbrite

Our fully staged, fully costumed and fully acted production will be performed in the round, giving the audience an exciting and immersive theatrical experience. The audience is restricted to 75 per evening, so do please book early.

Our Music Director is Mark Jones, twice winner of the Adrian Boult conducting scholarship and for 21 years, Music Director of Gresham’s School, and also Music Director of Fakenham Choral Society. Our stage director is Paul Hands, for many years Director of Drama at Gresham school, where he produced many operas and musicals in conjunction with Mark. He has the distinction of having directed award-winning Norfolk actress, Olivia Colman.

This will be the first time this opera has been presented in Norfolk since the Sadler’s Wells tour of 1974, therefore, an opportunity not to be missed. For further information and full cast list, vist our website or contact us at
