Opera Enthusiasts Will Enjoy This Play by the Genius Himself—Handel

The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts is a theater in Houston located downtown on the edge of the Houston Theater District. As a cultural organization invested in quality, diversity and community, our mission is to bring world-class entertainment and innovative works that reflect the various cultures and expansive diversity within our city to performing arts lovers, and perhaps most importantly, to inspire the next generation of performers and patrons.

With that being said, the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts will be presenting Ars Lyrica’s production of Agrippina on Friday, November 16th. After being an instant sensation at its premiere in Venice in 1709, Agrippina established the young Handel’s reputation as a theatrical genius. Its tuneful score, abundant humor, and classic Roman intrigue make for a delightful evening at the opera.

The cast for Ars Lyrica’s production of this early masterpiece includes Sofia Selowsky, Agrippina; John Holiday, Nero; Aryeh Nussbaum Cohen, Ottone; Camille Ortiz-Lafont, Poppea; Timothy Jones, Claudio; and Tara Faircloth, stage director.
