Met Opera Encore: Agrippina

In Ancient Rome, Agrippina plots the downfall of Emperor Claudius to secure the throne for her son Nero. Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato leads as the imperious empress in the Met’s first-ever performance of Handel’s first operatic triumph, a 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.
