Handel
Giulio Cesare

When the most powerful man in the world meets the most desirable woman in the world sparks are guaranteed to fly—which is why the irresistible story of Julius Caesar and Cleopatra still enchants us. Handel’s opera, starring Jennifer Larmore and Sylvia McNair as the ill-fated couple, abounds with dazzling vocal pyrotechnics as well as heart-rending drama. Stephanie Blythe (Cornelia) and David Daniels (her son Sesto) give memorable performances as the grieving family of the murdered Pompey. Brian Asawa sings Cleopatra’s conniving brother Tolomeo.
