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

Iphigénie en Aulide is based on the classic Greek story of Iphigenia, whose father was ordered to offer her up as a human sacrifice to appease the gods. In Gluck's opera the gods have second thoughts, and Iphigénie is banished to Tauris, where 15 years later Iphigénie en Tauride begins. She is now Diana's high priestess, unaware of her family's tragic events within the past 15 years. It is her job to sacrifice any strangers. Her brother Oreste and his friend Pylade are shipwrecked and Iphigénie spends the rest of the opera trying to avoid sacrificing them before Diana comes to her rescue
