Description

Handel’s Agrippina HWV 6 was performed with great success at the 2015 International Handel Festival in Göttingen (Germany) using the new Bärenreiter edition including the performance material and thisvocal score.

Agrippina is the last opera that Handel completed and premiered in Italy. The excellent libretto is one of the few original opera libretti that he set to music. The plot is tightlyconstructed, the characters sharply etched and equipped with a wide range of human emotions. Agrippina is married to her third husband, the Roman emperor Claudius. After he is presumed dead, she attempts with deception andintrigueto place her son Nero on the throne.

The vocal score includes all the numbers from the appendix of the full score. These were used either during the successful Venetian series of performances in 1709/10 or were deleted orreplaced by other numbers, versions and variants.
