Handel’s tale of intrigue and impropriety in ancient Rome arrives in cinemas on February 29, with star mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato as the controlling, power-hungry Agrippina and Harry Bicket conducting. Sir David McVicar’s production ingeniously reformers the action of this black comedy about the abuse of power to “the present,” where it should loudly resonate. The all-star cast features mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey as Agrippina’s son and future emperor Nerone, soprano Brenda Rae as the seductive Poppes, countertenor Lestyn Davies as the ambitious officer Ottone, and bass Matthew Rose as the weary emperor Claudius. This live cinema transmission is part of the Met’s award-winning Live in HD series, bringing opera to more than 2,200 theaters in more than 70 countries worldwide.

The state of Iowa allows districts to levy $0.135 per $1,000 of taxable valuation for a Public Educational and Recreational Levy (PERL). Funds from this levy may be used to establish and maintain public playgrounds, public recreation purposes and community education purposes.

Over the past 5 years, the district has spent an estimated $500,000 per elementary playground. Adding this levy allows the district to be more proactive in funding for future and ongoing playground needs and consider the expansion of community education services.

Although the vote is asking for an added levy rate, the district anticipates that the overall levy rate for the district will not increase, due to increased valuations and the district levying fewer cash reserve dollars. Preliminary budget calculations show that the school levy rate will drop by approximately $0.50 per thousand dollars taxable valuation, from $18.50 down to $17.99.
