L'incoronazione di Poppea /

 publicity

Initially, the producers of 2014’s Yale Baroque Opera Project performance described their show, Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea, as a "baroque soap opera," containing love, lust, murder, and intrigue. They also expressed an interest in "making opera sexy again" to attract the Yale community to see Poppea. I wanted to reflect these ideas while still referencing the opera’s classical roots. Eventually, I found the perfect image: the intricately sculpted hand from Baroque master Bernini’s The Rape of Proserpina.
