English Touring Opera: Agrippina 7 OCT 2022
Friday 7th October

Handel’s masterpiece of political intrigue is the most devilish of comedies, bringing the machinations of one of opera’s most notorious characters to life in a text penned by a Roman cardinal. Agrippina was an early success of Handel’s, and is presented in a revival of English Touring Opera’s 2013 production alongside their period instrument partners The Old Street Band and conducted by Leo Duarte. Expect stunning set and costume designs by Samal Blak, performed in a rapier-sharp English translation.

★★★★ “The razor-sharp precision of this meticulously rehearsed staging ensures that nearly three hours whizz by in a flash”
Evening Standard

★★★★★ “James Conway’s inspired production, in which the sightgags come thick and fast…is supported by an ingenious rotating set plus marvellous costumes by designer Samal Blak, and by Julie Osman’s perfectly judged choreography”
The Independent
