Anyone interested in checking out the costumes that are going to be used int the Boston Lyric Opera's upcoming production of Agrippina?  There's going to be a mini-performance by countertenors as well.  Event is today at the Boston Public Library.

In Agrippina, Handel’s insidious satire of the fall of the Roman Empire, the roles of Ottone, Nerone and Narciso are often cast as “trouser roles,” young male characters sung by women. But BLO’s upcoming production features the rare combination of three young countertenors in these roles – Anthony Roth Costanzo, David Trudgen and José Álvarez, all making their Company debuts.

Join audience favorite Liz Perlman of Somerville’s Costume Works for a discussion on trouser roles and the elegant costumes of Agrippina, the tale of the ultimate stage mother’s desperate plot to push her spoiled son Nerone onto the Roman throne. Perlman will preview the show’s glamorous creations by Tony Award-winning costumer designer Jess Goldstein and discuss their path from shop to stage. Dazzling pieces on dress forms will decorate the stage as Perlman leads a lively, fashion-friendly audience Q&A. Performances by Costanzo, Trudgen and Álvarez will bring the production to life!

Thursday, Feb 24, 7 to 8 p.m.
Rabb Lecture Hall at the Boston Public Library,
700 Boylston Street, Boston
