Aspect Opera presents their inaugural production: Benjamin Britten’s The Rape of Lucretia. A hidden treasure of the modern repertoire, The Rape of Lucretia is an evocative story of lovers divided, the cruelty of fate, and the dubiousness of faith. Aspect Opera’s stunning reimagination of Benjamin Britten’s dark yet lyrical chamber opera comes to York this April, featuring talented students and alumni of the universities of York, Manchester and London’s leading conservatoires this is certain to be an unmissable production.


“ingenious production… an auspicious start for Aspect” – Martin Dreyer, York Press
