The Irish Chamber Orchestra looks forward to its first collaboration with Irish Youth Opera.  With a libretto full of intrigue, deception and humorous escapades – scintillatingly set to music – Handel’s Agrippina is a gem!

In an Irish premiere production, the IYO is bringing Handel’s stunningly beautiful masterpiece to Limerick before touring to Galway, Dublin and Armagh. It will be performed in an English translation prepared by Amanda Holden for English National Opera in 2007.

In a co-production with Northern Ireland Opera, in association with the Irish Chamber Orchestra and the Lime Tree Theatre Limerick, IYO has assembled an incredibly exciting creative team featuring award-winning baroque conductor Jonathan Cohen, NI Opera’s Artistic Director Oliver Mears and acclaimed Irish designer Annemarie Woods. IYO’s Agrippina cast is brimming with the very best of Irish singers, some of whom make their full-scale professional operatic debut in this production.
