Diapason 5
Rome 54 A.D.: Nero must become Emperor! Agrippina is intent on installing her son at the centre of power, come what may. When rumour reaches her that her husband Caesar Claudius has died in a shipwreck, Agrippina thinks her moment has come. And even when the news of Claudius’ death turns out to be untrue, she will not relent. She makes false accusations against Otto, who saved Claudius from the depths, and sows discord between him and his beloved Poppea. Will Agrippina emerge triumphant or will her adversaries manage to cut through the jungle of political conspiracy? George Frideric Handel wrote this, one of his most impressive works, in Venice in 1709, achieving with the tale about Rome’s great female schemer his first truly resounding success as an opera composer.

Agrippina could be heard for the first time in the new critical edition of the Halle Handel Edition at the Göttingen Handel Festival in 2015. The performance was received enthusiastically by the press and public alike. "Good though the singers are, they are almost eclipsed by the vivid, virtuosic Festival Orchestra. Laurence Cummings keeps rollickingly on track, with unflagging energy and musicality." (Financial Times)
