The Nero Monologues is a one woman pastiche opera created and performed by international soprano and writer, Sarah Toth. Combining multiple elements to create an immersive audience experience, the show journeys the inner workings of the notorious Roman emperor during his final hours. Poetry by Geoffrey Lehmann is both spoken and set to music with a score by Peter James Learn and the new material is contrasted with existing pieces by Monteverdi, Handel, and Copeland among others. The resulting work explores themes of abandonment, abuse, passion, sexual identity, love, and power and comes together to paint a portrait of a damaged man; equal parts crazed artist and idealistic ruler. Inner Voices String Quartet collaborates to bring this story to life.
