Met Opera ENCORE: Handel's AGRIPPINA

High Definition Encore Broadcast

New Production. MET PREMIERE!

As the imperious title empress, mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato leads the Met premiere of Handel’s tale of deception and deceit. Harry Bicket conducts Sir David McVicar’s wry new production, which gives this Baroque black comedy a politically charged, modern updating.

*Please be aware that this production of AGRIPPINA, although containing no nudity, includes some suggestive adult content which may not be suitable for young audiences.

Estimated Run Time: 3h 45min, with one intermission

"A vivid new production … Played with electric vividness, and starring a guns-blazing Joyce DiDonato … Bold, snicker-out-loud funny, magnetic … Conducting from the harpsichord, Harry Bicket kept the pace crisp and headlong … The singers were fearless … A devilish delight … Handel died more than 250 years ago, but at the Met he seems more vital than ever.” – New York Times
