We’re playing Handel’s dramatic Agrippina at the Royal Opera House.

In the title role, Joyce DiDonato heads a specialist cast in Handel’s early operatic success, a calling card when he moved to London.

The score boasts a succession of brilliant Baroque jewels – one after another come the bright, sparkling arias, here performed by a cast also including acclaimed British singers Iestyn Davies and Lucy Crowe and directed with characteristic invention by Barrie Kosky.
