Turning to the ancient plot in The Rape of Lucretia (the suicide of a noble Roman lady Lucretia, disgraced by the son of King Tarquinius), Benjamin Britten, impressed by the horrors of the Second World War, created the image of his time.Similarly, Yuri Alexandrov, the director of the play, appeals to his own contemporaries. He and She make comments on long-time events, being the personification of male and female choirs in the ancient theater. But, besides, they are both refugees, thrown out of their home by the cruelty of the modern world. Their bitter destiny echoes what is happening in the depths of the scene and in the depths of centuries.The sophistication of scenic metaphors combined with the strict beauty of music makes it a signature performance of The St. Petersburg Opera. In 2014, the play won a prize at the Second Volga Drama Seasons festival as Best Performance in a Musical Theatre. The play also won The Golden Spotlight, the highest St Petersburg drama prize.
