Agrippina condotta a morire or Dunque sar pur vero, HWV110, is a dramatic secular cantata for soprano, two violins and continuo, composed by Georg Frideric Handel while he was in Italy, at some time between 1707 - 08. The anonymous text depicts Roman empress Agrippina the Younger on the way to her execution, which was ordered by her son, the emperor Nero, whom she had schemed to put on the throne. The title of the cantata, which is approximately fifteen minutes in length, may be translated as "Agrippina condemned to die".
