Agrippina presented by Met Opera will be screened at Bridlington's Spotlight Theatre on Saturday 29th February at 5.55pm.

Handel's Agrippina premiered in 1709 but fell out of fashion in the mid-18th century. In the 20th century it was revived and modern critical opinion is that Agrippina is Handel's first operatic masterpiece, full of freshness and musical invention.

The Emperor Claudius is reported drowned at sea so his wife Agrippina determines to make her son Nerone the new Emperor.

But her plans go awry when Claudius turns up with his military commander Ottone, who saved his life and to whom he has promised the throne.

Agrippina plots to use the two men’s desire for the beautiful Poppea to create enmity between them and destroy Ottone.

Meanwhile, Nerone becomes seriously smitten with Poppea.
