George Frideric Handel´s Agrippina in a recorded broadcast
from the Metropolitan Opera of New York

The Metropolitan Opera of New York in Chania | Agrippina | Handel | CAM | PhotoHandel’s tale of intrigue and impropriety in ancient Rome receives its first Met performances, with star mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato as the controlling, power-hungry Agrippina and Harry Bicket conducting. Sir David McVicar’s production ingeniously reframes the action of this black comedy about the abuse of power to “the present”, where it should loudly resonate. The all-star cast features mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey as Agrippina’s son and future emperor Nerone, soprano Brenda Rae as the seductive Poppea, countertenor Iestyn Davies as the ambitious officer Ottone, and bass Matthew Rose as the weary emperor Claudius.

Estimated Run Time: 3 hrs 45 mins
Met Premiere / First HD Broadcast

The opera is broadcasted with Greek and English subtitles
