Notes & Reviews:

"Agrippina" is one of Handel’s earlier operas, written in 1709. This brilliant DVD production includes a complete staged performance of the opera, interviews, backstage photos, and other additional information. "The costumes by Peter George d'Angelino Tap, connecting historical elements with the present age, also corresponded with the spirit of an old-new satirical comedy, featuring partly ancient Rome, partly Handel's time and, to no lesser extent, our own times as well. It is exactly this balancing on the edge between the serious and the comic, the high and the low, that makes 'Agrippina' a viable work of art, as witnessed by those who experienced this almost perfect production." -Ivo Sindelar, The Czech Handel Society
