Baroque operas were born at a time when the Age of Enlightenment was budding and the great philosophers pondered the mysteries of existence. Masters from Rubens to Rembrandt and Shakespeare had revolutionised aesthetic thinking, while it was fashionable for composers to focus on affections, the expressions of specific emotions. Opera was an ideal art form for the ostentatious and dramatic Baroque era.

The love story of Julius Caesar and queen Cleopatra ranks as one of Handel’s best operas. Power, attraction and love are entangled in a work of art that is brought to life by enchanting music and realistic characters. This production by Croatian National Theatre flies higher than most – quite literally so! Julius Caesar features awe-inspiring acrobatics as well as opera.

Giulio Cesare is making history at the Opera Festival. It’s the first ever baroque opera by Handel in the festival repertoire.
