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 2 parts on consecutive nights (or on the same day for Saturday performances). 

Part I: The Death of Pompey (Acts 1 & 2)
Having defeated his rival Pompey, can Caesar now survive the machinations of King of Egypt Ptolemy and his sister Cleopatra?
