Hailed by The Telegraph for her “authority, grandeur and high style” as the multifaceted title role of Handel’s opera Agrippina, Joyce DiDonato’s new studio recording of “Handel: Agrippina” with Il Pomo d’Oro and Chief Conductor Maxim Emelyanychev is now available for purchase. Released by Erato, joining them on this three-CD set recording is a cast of established and rising stars that includes Marie-Nicole Lemieux, Franco Fagioli, Luca Pisaroni, Elsa Benoit and Jakub Józef Orlinski.
Ms. DiDonato first took on the role of Agrippina in Spring 2019 on a European tour with Il Pomo d’Oro and Maestro Emelyanychev. She has since gone on to cement the fiery character into her repertoire with her recent staged debut as Agrippina at the Royal Opera House earlier this season, and she stars in the first-ever performances of the work at the Metropolitan Opera in February. Purchase links and more information about the album is available via Joyce’s Recordings.
