David McVicar’s production of Agrippina receives its premiere at the Metropolitan Opera House as part of the latest season. In a comedic opera reflecting life in Ancient Rome as well as political and diplomatic relations, it’s hailed as an "anti-heroic satirical comedy" that’s been musically reinvented for modern performances.
The cast of Agrippina stars Brenda Rae (as Poppea), Joyce DiDonato (as Agrippina), Kate Lindsey (as Nerone), Iestyn Davies (as Ottone), Duncan Rock (as Pallante), Matthew Rose (as Claudio).
Handel’s tale of intrigue and impropriety follows Agrippina, controlling and power-hungry in her desire to get her own way, abusing her power. Plotting the downfall of the Roman Emperor Claudius, Agrippina is determined for her son Nero to ascend to the throne, but will she be successful?
The running time is 3 hours and 45 minutes, with an interval of 30 minutes.
Sung in Italian with Met Titles in English, German, Spanish and Italian.
