Handel: Agrippina – Il Pomo d’Oro with Joyce DiDonato

Handel: Agrippina – Il Pomo d’Oro with Joyce DiDonato

Friday, 31 May 2019, 6.30pm

Agrippina is a woman on a mission: the stakes are love, death, and supreme power. Joyce DiDonato stars in Handel’s first operatic masterpiece.

Handel’s youthful tragi-comedy caused a sensation in Carnival season in Venice in 1709: it’s only fitting that this concert performance features vocal superstars like Joyce DiDonato and Franco Fagioli. And Maxim Emelyanychev and Il Pomo d’Oro won’t hold back, either.

It’s not the first time DiDonato has played a Handel heroine at the Barbican, but her chemistry with Maxim Emelyanychev and Il Pomo d’Oro has to be heard to be believed – that’ll be why their recent album together, War and Peace, won a Gramophone Award. This is Baroque opera at its most passionate and its most brilliant: an unquestioned highlight of our Il Pomo d’Oro focus.
