Georg Friedrich Händel
Nicola Francesco Haym
Muddles and mix-ups until Cleopatra is declared Queen of Egypt. Händel's most lavishly orchestrated heroic opera in a cult staging! Thrilling musical theatre by Richard Jones (producer) with Ivor Bolton in the pit and Ann Murray as Giulio Cesare. Baroque goes pop. Verdict: breathtaking!
In Italian with German surtitles
