Giulio Cesare: Opera North
Giulio Cesare has all the colour, drama, passion and epic sweep of a Hollywood blockbuster in the story of the passionate romance between Julius Caesar and Cleopatra.
In Opera North's new production of Handel's great masterpiece, Cleopatra uses all her considerable wiles to persuade Caesar to join her in an alliance against her brutish brother Ptolemy.
Plots and counter-plots ensue before Caesar and Cleopatra emerge finally triumphant in both love and war.
Giulio Cesare features sumptuous music full of sensuality and gracefulness, especially in Handel's lavish music for the role of the legendary Egyptian queen, Cleopatra, sung by soprano Sarah Tynan. She is joined by mezzo soprano Pamela Helen Stephen in the role of Julius Caesar.
Opera North has established itself as one of the leading arts companies in the United Kingdom and one of the most imaginative opera companies in Europe. The Company is committed to bringing a wide variety of high quality work to established audiences for one of the most exciting art forms in Britain today.
