The Metropolitan Opera in New York makes history by announcing their first ever production of Handel's Opera, Agrippina, starring mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato as the controlling, power-hungry Agrippina and Harry Bicket conducting. 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. This is a Sir David McVicar production with modern staging. John Macfarlane is the set and costume designer, Paul Constable is lighting designer, and Andrew George is the choreographer.

This new production runs from February 6 -March 7, 2020.
