With all the colour, passion and epic sweep of a historical blockbuster, Handel’s take on the tempestuous romance between Julius Caesar and Cleopatra features some of his most exciting and seductive music. The war between Rome and Egypt is the violent backdrop for a story of passion, ambition and vengeance, played out through vividly etched characters and a series of glittering arias. Tim Albery’s acclaimed production returns under the baton of Baroque specialist Christian Curnyn.
