Giulio Cesare

Giulio Cesare

Details

Cleopatra and her brother are vying for the throne when Julius Caesar arrives in Egypt, pursuing an enemy. Seeing the opportunity to tip the balance of power in her favour, Cleopatra seduces Caesar. As their passion soars, Caesar finds himself drawn into a dangerous web of bloodthirsty ambition…

In this ravishing Handel opera, vengeance and desire drive vividly-etched characters through a series of glittering arias – by turns seductive, desperate, triumphant and tender. TIM ALBERY’s acclaimed production, which has all the colour, passion and epic sweep of a Hollywood blockbuster, returns under the baton of Baroque specialist CHRISTIAN CURNYN.

‘Compelling…delivers some of the finest baroque singing you will hear anywhere.’
★★★★ — The Guardian [https://www.theguardian.com/music/2012/jan/15/giulio-cesare-opera-north-review] (2012)

‘Accomplished singing framed by an attractive spectacle.’
★★★★ — The Telegraph [https://www.telegraph.co.uk/opera/] (2012)
