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.

Please join us for a complimentary pre-opera lecture in The Paramount Theater Auditorium at 12:00PM.  The lecture for Agrippina will be conducted by Tim Snider, attorney and host of WTJU’s Sunday Opera Matinee.

About the Met Live in HD:

In December 2006, The Metropolitan Opera launched The Met Live in HD, a series of performance transmissions shown live in high definition in movie theaters around the world. The series expanded from an initial six transmissions to ten in the 2014-15 season and today reaches more than 2,000 venues in 70 countries across six continents. The Live in HD performances are later also shown on public television, and a number of them have been released on DVD. In partnership with the New York City Department of Education and the Metropolitan Opera Guild, the Met has developed a nationwide program for students to attend Live in HD transmissions for free in their schools.  The Paramount began broadcasting during the 2008-09 season and is pleased to continue to present this series for the community.
