Metropolitan Opera Live: Agrippina

Certificate
12A
Running Time
225 mins

In Ancient Rome, scheming, power-hungry Agrippina (star mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato) plots the downfall of Emperor Claudius to secure the throne for her son Nero.

Performed at the Met for the very first time, Handel’s blackly comic tale of intrigue is updated to “the present” in Sir David McVicar‘s production to bring out the opera’s contemporary resinances.
