Egypt, ancient times. The Roman leader Julius Caesar hounds an enemy to the edge of his empire. Arriving at the Egyptian court, he encounters a dynastic feud between the young queen, Cleopatra, and the joint ruler, her cruel brother, Tolomeo. As alliances shift, an ecstatic new love soars but Caesar soon finds himself drawn into a dangerous web of shifting alliances and bloodthirsty ambition...
Handel’s take on the tempestuous romance between Caesar and Cleopatra features some of his most exciting music. Vengeance and desire drive vividly-etched characters through this ravishing, brutal masterpiece and an astounding series of glittering arias, by turn seductive, desperate, triumphant and tender.
Tim Albery’s acclaimed production returns under the baton of Baroque specialist Christian Curnyn in a production of beautiful and dramatic designs and all the colour, passion and epic sweep of a Hollywood blockbuster.
