Met HD: Agrippina (Handel)New Production/Met Premiere
As the imperious title empress, mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato leads the Met premiere of Handel’s 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.
Please be aware that this production of Agrippina, although containing no nudity, includes some suggestive adult content which may not be suitable for young audiences.
Ticket holders are invited to a pre-opera talk by Leslie Gerber 30 minutes prior to curtain time in the theater.
Made possible through the support of Premier Medical Group, the Jane W. Nuhn Charitable Trust, the Dr. Edwin Ulrich Charitable Trust, the Benjamin R. Strong Opera Fund and the Stephen & Julia Dunwell Fund, both of the Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley. Promotional support courtesy of WMHT – FM 88.7 Poughkeepsie.
Reminder: This is a live satellite broadcast direct from the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City. On occasion there may be visual or sound disturbances that are beyond the Bardavon’s control. In the event a disturbance does occur, please be patient. Thank you.
