Met Opera: Agrippina

  • All Sites: 13 Aug 2020
Runtime: 215 min
GENRES: Live Show, Opera
TBC

Handel’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.

"Joyce DiDonato is, as always, a star — majestically devious, irresistibly charming, and armed with a voice that ranges from intimate to incandescent." - Vulture

NYT Critic's Pick
"This “Agrippina” — yanked from ancient Rome into a deliciously bleak vision of our time, played with electric vividness, and starring a guns-blazing Joyce DiDonato" - New York Times

★★★★ - The Guardian
"
It’s clever, sharply observed and witty"
