Metropolitan Opera: Agrippina (Handel)

Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Handels tale of intrigue and impropriety in ancient Rome arrives in cinemas on February 29, with star mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato as the controlling, power-hungry Agrippina and Harry Bicket conducting. Sir David McVicars 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 Agrippinas 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.
