Handel: Giulio Cesare
Saturday 14 Mar 2020 7:30pm
One of Handel’s most celebrated operas: a story of passion and revenge, featuring a treasure trove of great arias with immense dramatic intensity. The opera follows the events surrounding Julius Caesar’s conquest of Egypt, as well as his uneasy alliance and romance with fabled Egyptian queen, Cleopatra.
Handel’s epic opera returns to ETO in an adapted revival of their widely acclaimed 2017 production, led by ETO’s Artistic Director.
