Giulio Cesare: The Death of Pompey

George Frideric Handel - Autumn 2017

Handel’s greatest creation and a thrilling story of passion and revenge in the midst of bitter power struggles over the succession to Egypt’s throne.

Giulio Cesare is Handel’s most celebrated opera, and a real clash of titans on stage. A thrilling story of passion and revenge, it features music so beautiful and characters so strong that we have decided to present it complete, in two intriguing performances.

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

Part II: Cleopatra’s Needle
The Battle for the Kingdom of the Nile reaches a crisis, as Pompey’s family is enslaved, Caesar is presumed dead, and Cleopatra is made captive by her brother.

Don’t miss this exhilaratingly epic drama, featuring our partner baroque orchestra The Old Street Band and a first-rate cast.

New production, sung in Italian with English surtitles
