Composed in 1709, Agrippina is an opera seria in three acts on a libretto by Cardinal Vincenzo Grimani. The opera tells the story of Agrippina, the mother of Nero, as she plots the downfall of the Roman Emperor Claudius and the installation of her son as emperor. Grimani's libretto, considered one of the best that Handel set, is full of topical political allusions. Some believe that it reflects the rivalry between Grimani and Pope Clement XI. Jacobs performs the work in its original version

Così fan tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart ( Recording )
1 edition published in 1999 in Italian and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Two sisters whose fiancés have gone off to war (or so they pretend), a clever maid, a cynical old philosopher, and those same two fiancés in disguise--six characters is all it takes for Mozart and his librettist, Lorenzo Da Ponte, to explore both the fun and the heartbreak that love can lead to in this equally lighthearted and deeply human comedy. James Levine masterfully leads a stellar cast that includes Carol Vaness and Tatiana Troyanos as the sisters, Jerry Hadley and Thomas Hampson as their fiancés, Betsy Norden as Despina, and Richard Van Allen as Don Alfonso
