Boston Lyric Opera conducted by Gary Thor Wedow
Boston Lyric Opera returns to the Shubert Theatre with Handel's satirical and ravishing Agrippina (it could have been called "Naughty Nero"), in a production borrowed from Glimmerglass and New York City Opera. Gary Thor Wedow makes his BLO conducting debut, and the stars are Caroline Worra as one of antiquity's monster mothers, the Met's brilliant and adorable coloratura Kathleen Kim as Poppea, and counter-tenor David Trudgen as the young Nero.
Handel's Agrippina, with Caroline Worra [Agrippina], David Trudgen [Nerone], Kathleen Kim [Poppea], Anthony Roth Costanzo [Ottone], Christian Van Horn [Claudio], David Cushing [Lesbo], and David McFerrin [Pallante]
