Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This is the major debut on Decca DVD of Danielle de Niese. Returning to the opera house where she sang her sensational Cleopatra in Handel's Giulio Cesare, Danielle performs the title role in Monteverdi's great opera of lust and power, in Robert Carsen's new, modern-dress staging. De Niese is perfectly cast as the beautiful and seductive Poppea who ruthlessly grabs power as Nero's lover but, in this production, is doomed from the moment of her coronation at the end of the opera. De Niese's performance is vocally and dramatically powerful, perfectly complemented by Alice Coote as Nero.
