Please be aware that this production of Agrippina, although containing no nudity, includes some suggestive adult content that may not be suitable for young audiences.

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.
