Giulio Cesare is Handel’s most celebrated opera: a thrilling story of passion and revenge set to one of the composer’s most beautiful scores. In this new production we are presenting the opera in full, divided in two parts on consecutive nights.
Part II: Cleopatra’s Needle
The Battle for the Kingdom of the Nile reaches a crisis, as Pompey’s family is enslaved, Caesar is presumed dead, and Cleopatra is made captive by her brother.
Don’t miss this exhilaratingly epic drama, featuring our partner baroque orchestra The Old Street Band and a first-rate cast including Christopher Ainslie in the title role, Soraya Mafi as Cleopatra and Kitty Whately as Sesto.
Both parts sung in Italian with English subtitles
