The Coronation of Poppea (Arnalta)

Monteverdi: The Coronation of Poppea (Arnalta)
produced by David Alden for Welsh National Opera

Neil Jenkins sings Arnalta very beautifully, and is the stateliest, most tight-lipped drag-queen imaginable, like Ronnie Barker at his best. And he keeps his act up through the curtain-calls: when a lewd wolf-whistle greeted him from the gallery, he responded with a shy moue and modestly lowered eyes.
