Overview

George Frideric Handel's comic opera Agrippina interweaves a cat's cradle of political intrigues. The complicated story centers around the wildly manipulative Agrippina, wife of the Emperor of Rome, Claudio, and follows Agrippina's attempts to push her son, Nerone, onto the throne when his father is mistakenly thought dead. Agrippina stops at nothing to shove aside Nerone's competitors, even attempting to con several men into murdering each other. This release contains a film of the May 1985 stage production of Agrippina, shot at the Rokokotheater Schwetzingen, performed by the London Baroque and directed for the stage by Michael Hampe. Gunter von Kannen stars as Claudio, Barbara Daniels as Agrippina, David Kuebler as Nerone, and Janice Hall as Poppea.
