Rome, 510BC. At a military camp outside the city, the Etruscan prince Tarquinius Sextus hatches a plan where virtue and violence collide, which will unfold to destroy Lucretia, bring about the end of Etruscan rule and the rise of the Roman Republic.

Written in 1946, Britten coined the term ‘chamber opera’ to describe this intimate and compelling masterpiece. Presented by Trinity Laban Opera, this work of psychological force and power promises to be an intense and rewarding experience, and an opportunity to hear young talent at the very start of their careers.
