Atom User Reviews for The Metropolitan Opera: Agrippina
All cast members were fabulous and the parts gave them plenty of opportunity to show their stuff .
Great cast. Nero was amazing. Handel needed an editor! 4hrs is too long.
My thanks to the Met for this kind of production - traditional opera redone. The cast was superb - with plenty of acting, choreography. Comedy and pathos. From beginning to end, totally entertained.
Over-the-top satirical production, but it worked (all those da capo arias could use a little help), and the singing was superb. Great fun.
Joyce DiDonato steals the show with a voice that soars.
Outstanding singing - and orchestra! Relevant, funny, sexy. Encore!!!!
The setting was clearly anachronistic and the dance was, at times, over the top but the singing was excellent
