This beautifully designed production vividly brings to life the narrative twists and turns, scheming, desire and lust for power that characterise the original opera. William Christie conducts the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment bringing every nuance and dramatic note of Handel's music to the fore. Sung in Italian with English subtitles. Musically, it’s phenomenal – beautifully conducted by William Christie The Guardian. Giulio Cesare, Glyndebourne.

First performed in London in 1724, Handel's Giulio Cesare is essentially a study of the hidden agendas at work during the creation and consolidation of empire.

Its politics are at once bleak and dodgy. Julius Caesar and his supposedly noble Romans take on the manipulative world of Cleopatra's Egypt. The Romans are trying to bring their own civil war to an end, while Egypt is being pulled apart by dynastic intrigue. Händel - Giulio Cesare in Egitto, HWV 17.
