The Glenn Gould School Spring Opera
This performance will now be a free public online concert.
The extraordinary artists of The Glenn Gould School vocal program and Royal Conservatory Orchestra perform their annual staged opera in Koerner Hall, this year in a concert version format.
Etruscan prince Tarquinius, who is leading Rome in a war against the Greeks, is tired of hearing his general Collatinus speak of his virtuous wife Lucretia and decides to test her. He comes to her house in Rome, demands shelter, and reassures her that Collatinus is well. That night, he enters her bedroom and rapes her, with disastrous consequences.
