Joyce DiDonato has staked a powerful claim on the multi-faceted title role of Handel’s Agrippina, singing it with “authority, grandeur and high style” (The Telegraph). She has performed it in concert and in the opera house with Maxim Emelyanychev, Chief Conductor of Il Pomo d’Oro. Joining them on this recording is a cast of established and rising stars that includes Marie-Nicole Lemieux, Franco Fagioli, Luca Pisaroni, Elsa Benoit and Jakub Józef Orlinski.

“Even by her own exacting standards, DiDonato gives one of her finest performances, wonderfully voiced and acted.” (The Guardian)

“Emelyanychev drew subtlety and knockout vigor from his Baroque ensemble.” (Financial Times)

History

George Frideric Handel's Agrippina

Originally set in ancient Rome, this early Italian opera of Handel was a success that secured his international reputation. The composer’s inventive musical approach is the perfect vehicle to delve into the complex ideas of the drama: Like imperial corruption itself, the score can dazzle with elegant splendor while betraying the devious machinations under the surface.
