Beaten Gold

About

Who has not wondered what lies behind the faces of our leaders? Authority, desire and fear - chiseled, sanded and beaten into human forms. The New Renaissance Collective presents the stories of two such rulers, whose desires threaten the long-sculpted work of their forefathers.

Weaving together selected scenes from Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea with Shakespeare’s de-coronation of Richard II, we lift the curtain on the sighs, the glances, the clashes of metal, and the stutters of failure that lie beyond the smooth beaten surface of a mortally longed-for crown.
