When the most powerful man in the world meets the most desirable woman in the world sparks are guaranteed to fly--which is why the irresistible story of Julius Caesar and Cleopatra still enchants us. Handel's opera, starring Jennifer Larmore and Sylvia McNair as the ill-fated couple, abounds with dazzling vocal pyrotechnics as well as heart-rending drama. Stephanie Blythe (Cornelia) and David Daniels (her son Sesto) give memorable performances as the grieving family of the murdered Pompey. Brian Asawa sings Cleopatra's conniving brother Tolomeo

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

Messiah oratorio in three parts, HWV 56, 1742( Visual )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Central to the plot is the story of three men, perhaps three brothers, and the family entanglements bound up with their wives and children. One of the men commits suicide, after which the action onstage follows the attempts of the survivors to come to terms with what has happened. The burial is a fixed point and is followed by the events that led up to it and then by the question: "What comes next?" This approach gives concrete expression to a recurrent theme in Messiah: the category of human doubt. The abstract, philosophical layer of the score, the voice of God and the inner voices of the characters are taken by the chorus, which is choreographically involved in the action, as is the aforementioned dancer, who embodies not only the sufferings of Christ but also the life of the suicide victim after he has killed himself. Mention should also be made of a figure described as a "sign language performer", who accompanies the orchestral introduction, for example."--Booklet
