Metropolitan Opera: Agrippina (Handel)
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
Mezzo-soprano *Joyce DiDonato *leads as the imperious title empress in the Met’s first-ever performance of this tale of deception and deceit.
Set in Ancient Rome, Agrippina plots the downfall of Emperor Claudius to secure the throne for her son Nero, in *Handel’s *first operatic triumph.
*Harry Bicket *conducts *Sir David McVicar’s *wry new production, which gives this Baroque black comedy a politically charged, modern updating.
