22 - Agrippina

Handel’s tale of intrigue and impropriety in ancient Rome features star mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato as the controlling, power-hungry Agrippina. Sir David McVicar’s production ingeniously reframes the action of this black comedy about the abuse of power and Agrippina’s mendacious efforts to put her son Nero on the throne to “the present,” where it should loudly resonate. “The law bows to power,” she announces early on.
