Merola Opera Program continues its 2023 Summer Festival with a fully staged production of Benjamin Britten’s The Rape of Lucretia, approached through a current lens. Based on an ancient Roman myth, with a libretto by Ronald Duncan set to one of Britten’s most searing and lyrical scores, The Rape of Lucretia follows the tale of dedicated spouse Lucretia, who becomes a target in a brutal weaponization of sexual assault for power.
For audience members who have never attended a Merola production, a limited quantity of $10 tickets will be available with the code: MEROLANEW. These Community Access tickets are sponsored by TogetherSF.
