By GEORGE FRIDERIC HANDEL
Libretto by Cardinal Vincenzo Grimani

First performed: December 26, 1709, Teatro San Giovanni Grisostomo, Venice
Florida Grand Opera Company Premiere

One of George Frideric Handel’s earliest operatic compositions, Agrippina tells the story of one of opera’s fiercest leading ladies. Once she hears that her husband Claudius has died in a storm at sea, Agrippina plots to secure the throne to the Roman Empire for her son Nero. This opera is filled with exciting music to display the most impressive vocal fireworks, in addition to being performed by a traditional baroque orchestra, utilizing the instrumentation of the time. Devious plots, love and obsession with power, Agrippina is on par with any of today’s popular telenovelas.
