  1. Agrippina HWV 6 - George Frideric Handel

The coronation that goes wrong.....

When Agrippina hears of the death of her husband Claudio by shipwreck, she seizes the opportunity to place her son Nerone in power. After securing the support of the toadying Narciso and Pallante, she is chagrined to find Claudio has been saved by the gallant Ottone, whom Claudio has rewarded with a promise of the crown. But Claudio, Nerone and Ottone are all obsessed with the cunning Poppea… As they pursue her, and Agrippina tries to steer Nerone back into the line of succession, we’re left to wonder whether any of these people should really be in charge…

Everyone is hungry for power, but not all are worthy...

In a production that is set somewhere between Suetonius, Silicon Valley and 'Succession', HGO, winners of the 2023 'Off West End' Award for opera performance, is delighted to present Handel's sparkling opera with its dramatic (and farcical) scenes and its brilliant music, sung by our exciting young singers and accompanied by an orchestra of period instruments, in the intimate setting of Jacksons Lane Theatre.
