“Facing Agrippina”

‘Facing Agrippina’ is a documentary in which Grammy Award winning conductor Rene Jacobs, the designerChristian Lacroix, the French director Vincent Boussard, the soprano Alexandrina Pendatchanska, transform the search for answers to the issues of rule and power in a paradise for the senses. The Director Nayo Titzin guides us through Handel’s music across the halls of the Staatsoper Unter den Linden in Berlin, discovers the marble busts of the main characters in the halls of the Louvre and finally accepts the challenge to face Agrippina. A mother obsessed by the desire for power. Are there no unacceptable means in the world of politics? How can people be manipulated and, does the end justify the means?”
