Julia Agrippina was ambitious and ruthless. She was also beautiful and seductive. That wicked combination made for a fascinating storyline when Agrippina, wife of Emperor Claudius, aspired to put her volatile son Nero on the throne.
That's the story that Opera Omaha will present when it stages Agrippina this weekend at the Orpheum Theater. Called shocking and often darkly comic, the famed opera was created by George Frideric Handel and features glorious melodies with the composer at his "most theatrically visceral and musically stunning," according to the show's teaser.
Bottom line: This is a perfect way to spend Valentine's Day with your honey.
