"An operatic masterpiece ... Handel blessed 'Agrippina' with some of his finest music, creating a fascinating, underlying tension that keeps the story compelling, yet never interferes with the opera's overall satirical impact." —NPR

Shocking power struggles and serpentine acts of lust and betrayal define Handel's "Agrippina," a dark comedy about a woman who schemes to advance her son's career at a high-tech company after the presumed death of his superior. With vocal fireworks and despairing laments in a captivating score, "Agrippina" is sexy and suspenseful political intrigue that promises to grip the audience from start to finish.
