Description
(Winner of the CHOC de Classica Award; an Official Selection of France Musique; Recipient of the "ffff" Distinction from Télérama) Belgian-born conductor and countertenor René Jacobs is one of leading lights in the universe of early music performance; his interpretation of G.F. Handel's first successful opera brings the visceral thrills that this drama of scandal and amorous intrigue in first-century Rome is meant to evoke. Seasoned performers of baroque opera, the stellar cast includes Jennifer Rivera as Nerone, Sunhae Im as Poppea, Bejun Mehta as Ottone, and Marcos Fink in the role of Cladio. This set includes a substantial booklet featuring the libretto, a synopsis, photographs, and Jacobs's compelling thoughts on the opera.

"[Jacobs's] recent recordings attest to his boldness of approach, consistency of vision and brilliance of effect."—NYTimes

"The performance is excellent: the recitatives and arias are deftly conducted, flowing seamlessly together. Four stars."—The Guardian
