Handel’s AGRIPPINA – Met Opera
Wednesday September 2, 2020  7pm
Music Theatre Movie

(902) 532-7704

Handel’s tale of intrigue and impropriety in ancient Rome arrives in cinemas with star mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato as the controlling, power-hungry Agrippina and Harry Bicket conducting. Sir David McVicar’s production ingeniously reframes the action of this black comedy about the abuse of power to “the present,” where it should loudly resonate. The all-star cast features mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey as Agrippina’s son and future emperor Nerone, soprano Brenda Rae as the seductive Poppea, countertenor Iestyn Davies as the ambitious officer Ottone, and bass Matthew Rose as the weary emperor Claudius.
