HADRIAN

Rufus Wainwright with libretto by Daniel MacIvor

 TO 

WORLD PREMIERE

Emperor Hadrian is devastated after his lover Antinous drowns in the Nile River. While matters of state encroach on his grief, and advisors clamour for war against a radical new threat to the Empire, Hadrian slips out of time to re-encounter the vision and reality of Antinous — and learn the truth about what happened on the Nile.

This highly anticipated world premiere from composer Rufus Wainwright and librettist Daniel MacIvor features the company debuts of opera legends Thomas Hampson and Karita Mattila, and is presented by the same creative team behind the COC’s 2017 production of Louis Riel.

On stage at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts, 145 Queen St. W., Toronto.

Sung in English and Latin with English SURTITLES

Content advisory: Hadrian contains nudity and scenes of a sexual nature. The opera is recommended for audiences 18 or older. Should you have questions or require more details, we invite you to contact our team at 416-363-8231 or 1-800-250-4653.
